The Meeting Place

by | 9 October 2021 | Local Charity, Rotherham, Social Group

The Meeting Place, based at 48 Wensleydale Road in Wingfield, offers a drop-in facility for adults with learning disabilities and difficulties from the Rotherham area. They also organise several affordable social events, discos, day trips and supported holidays throughout the year for the customers.
They are a social enterprise, which means that all profits will be reinvested back into the business for the benefit of those who attend the meeting.
The service acts as a first point for individuals who have struggled to maintain friendships or who have no social circle, they also provide advice, mentoring and signposting services. They have worked with the people who use The Meeting Place and their families over many years and have built up very close relationships with most of the individuals and their wider families, and as such they feel they have a responsibility towards them when life becomes challenging or difficult in any way.
They offer the best value for money service in the Rotherham area. They offer very low admission rates (£7.50 per person for three hours), they offer affordable food and drink, and give customers the opportunity to attend low-cost social evening events, day trips and supported holidays. Staff are fully trained, widely experienced, and fully insured.
They open for drop in sessions as follows:
• Mondays, 3.00pm to 6.00pm
• Saturdays, 10.00am to 1.00pm
• Saturdays, 1.00pm to 4.00pm
Many people are known to stay all day and have lunch with them. A full day, including lunch and a drink cost, £18.50. They also hold discos at East Dene Social Club, entry costs £5.00 and includes a raffle. The next one will be Halloween on Tuesday 26th October, from 7.00pm to 9.45pm, followed by Christmas disco and buffet on Tuesday 21st December at the same time.
