For more than 40 years Centre 81’s Skills and Activities Centre has been a lifeline for disabled people and those who care for them. A fun place to meet and relax. Somewhere stimulating to learn new things. A safe haven in which they can be themselves.
Our former base in Tar Works Road was old and costly to maintain, so we began the search for somewhere more spacious, where we could provide disabled people with the high standard of facilities they deserved. That place was Yare House in Morton Peto Road, Great Yarmouth. Members, staff and volunteers moved there in June 2022 and although not all the work had been completed we have two large spaces for activities and socialising, plus a large catering kitchen, two members’ kitchens and spacious wet rooms and bathrooms. We aim to open up our main skills and activities area by the end of 2023.
Yare House will also enable us to develop our ground-breaking training programmes and provide meeting space for other charities and groups in the area.
