Activities designed for adults with Learning Disabilities

Here at GL11 we have a goal – to see all people fulfil their potential within the community regardless of the challenges that we face. Our aim is to offer a comprehensive range of activities to build confidence and skills which can be taken back into the lives of our families and friends. GL11 offers a number of courses, activities and work experience – come and join us! Are you looking for something in particular – talk to us and we'll try to build something to meet your requirements. Contact us for a chat.
