Reach is a charity that supports people with learning disabilities in Nottinghamshire.

We want to help people with learning disabilities to live well, make friends and be part of their community.

Our day centres

Our centres are called Reach Southwell, Reach Newark, Reach Mansfield and Flower Pod. Click on the links to find out more or telephone our Head Office on 01636 819066.

At our centres people with learning disabilities can learn new skills and make friends. We do lots of different courses and activities.

Here some examples

  • cookery
  • music and singing
  • drama
  • arts and crafts
  • bowling
  • gardening
  • confidence building
  • communications skills
  • being a volunteer
  • dance
  • computing
  • health, sports and fitness
  • men’s groups
  • women’s groups

We have trained tutors and other staff to make sure the courses are organised and fun. We also have volunteers who help at our centres.

We also do special projects to find new ways of doing things. We work with other organisations to make sure people with learning disabilities feel part of their community and can be happier and healthier.

We also do two holidays each year for our clients. We go to accessible hotels in places like Suffolk. We go by coach and stay for three nights.
