The Wellington Centre
We constantly seek to improve our facilities so that we can provide the best, inclusive and modern facilities accessible to all.
We moved to the Wellington Centre in 2011 after Bonhomie, our original home for 28 years, became too small. The Wellington Centre is a community hub which opens its doors to its’ members and the local community providing a safe haven for all to use.
Our sensory room provides the ideal place to immerse in an atmosphere of relaxation and has many proven benefits for both adults and children with learning disabilities. The room is fitted with multi-sensory equipment vital and effective in helping to support those with sensory needs.
