The project will create a centre for people with mild or moderate learning difficulties living in the Lowestoft and Ipswich area. The organisation will target those who live in the community either alone or with family who cannot afford to join activities. They will provide youth groups for those over 10 years of age and a group for adults on the autistic spectrum offering activities such as table top games, karaoke, bingo and arts as well as providing voluntary work experience in the cafe.

I am a witness to the wonderful service Jacs and her team provide to those with learning difficulties. They are passionate, caring and determined in wanting to help more people and the Peoples Millions funding will enable this!
