Covid-19: Our centres are closed for now, however we continue to support people with learning disabilities and their families.
We are offering online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, distributing activity and wellbeing packs and helping to sort out problems.
To find out more about how we are supporting people with learning disabilities and their families, read our Crisis Response page.
Reach Southwell is very much part of the local community. Situated in the very centre of the town, we are able to offer clients lots of opportunities and activities. Coming along to Reach Southwell gives the chance to get involved in local life and to feel connected to their community in an easy-to-access location.
As this is also our headquarters, we are firmly plugged in to Southwell life and that means that we can support our clients to get involved in local events. Reach Southwell clients have participated in the Lantern Walk, archaeological digs and other community events in recent years, and there is lots more to come.
At Reach Southwell we offer:
- regular courses including Media Fun, Fun and Fitness, Art and Singing
- women’s groups on Mondays and Fridays
- men’s cookery on Wednesday evenings
- weekly massage and reflexology therapy
- one-to-one life skills sessions led by trained and experienced volunteers
We can also offer supported volunteering opportunities for clients who are preparing for their next steps towards independence and active citizenship.

Southwell Centre Manager
Hello, I’m Beverley – I’m Centre Manager for Southwell. In my work as a nurse, I saw how important it is for people to feel connected to their community and to other people. I am committed to finding ways to support each client as an individual with the potential to live their life as a fully rounded person and more able to make informed choices.
Please note the timetable is subject to change and there is a waiting list for some sessions.
