“It ain’t jelly ‘n ice cream!”

“Bubble Club monthly nights and preparatory workshops are well attended, and people who come to us report that they enjoy these events and would not have the opportunity to attend such events without Bubble Club providing this opportunity for them”

If I wasn't here what would I be doing? It would just be me and these four walls.

Jenny, Bubble Club Team Member

“It’s very difficult to get funding for these kind of events because people don’t see the value. But what do you like to do on the weekend? - I like to be with my mates, I like to go to the pub. People don’t see that as a necessity but it is, of course it is. Otherwise it’s loneliness, it’s depression, it’s not meeting up with people.”

Support Worker, Mencap

“The reason why the Bubble Club is special to all of us is that we get to do things ourselves as a team and also its bringing not only friends together but its uniting everyone with a learning difficulty as well…. If your feeling down and a feeling a bit a lonely, you can come over to bubble club and socialise and have fun with people.”
