Anyone connected with Club 2000 will be aware of how well it meets the aims of providing social and sporting activities for learning disabled people. The invaluable support and enthusiasm of volunteers make each get together and trip and outing not only possible, but safe and enjoyable. Members look forward to Thursday and talk about outings weeks and months ahead. From the point of view of families and carers, we see the enjoyment on the faces of loved ones, hear about their friends and share the excitement leading up to discos, trips and most importantly THE HOLIDAY! We, the families and carers, make sure the costs of trips are covered, remind members to take appropriate clothing on trips and sort out the pick-up times and transport. In short, we feel as if we are planning for our own holiday and in a way, it is. The annual holiday not only gives members the chance to have a break with their friends, it is also a time for families and carers to take a break of their own, knowing that their loved one is doing something everyone else has a chance to do, with their friends and dedicated volunteers who will keep them safe. Club 2000 is great at keeping families in touch with what is going on, and the holiday is no exception. The Club Facebook page is filled with pictures of their outings, the train ride, the boat trip and lots and lots of pictures of giant ice creams! The live feed on Facebook is hilarious and how anyone manages to sleep while on holiday is beyond me! So, to sum up, Club 2000 is great for members but brilliant for families and carers too. Thanks everyone at Club for all that you do!

Having been coming to Club 2000 for over two years as Harry Cope’s support worker I think all the volunteers and supporters do an amazing job of keeping the club running and always have fun activities and events going on. Harry always looks forward to coming to club every week as do I as everyone is always so welcoming and friendly. I would recommend the club to anyone who is looking to join.

My son, Harry, joined Club 2000 as soon as he was able to. He attends the weekly meetings, has joined the yearly holiday, been on various trips and taken part in sports days. Harry has gained, and continues to gain, confidence in himself since joining and this is primarily due to the expertise of the many volunteers that make Club 2000 possible. The opportunities afforded to the members are varied and fun and allow a vulnerable group within our society a safe place for them to join in, meet friends and enjoy themselves. Our family are very grateful for Club 2000 and the excellent service that they provide for our son.

Rhys has been going to Club 2000 for a few weeks now and he loves it. Although he does not take part in any other activities, other than the gym. He is made to feel welcome and included. Rhys comes home feeling happy, energised and empowered.

My son, Lee has been attending Club 2000 for the past 14 months and it has been a great experience for him. Lee has autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD so does have many days where he struggles in accepting different places and new experiences, but he has accepted Club 2000, he has so much fun. He goes to the gym with other peers from the group and they have fun whilst getting plenty of exercise. The volunteers are great giving lots of encouragement and positive feedback. He then also likes to play bingo which is a lot of fun and plays on the Nintendo Wii with another group of his peers, mainly bowling. They have quite a little competition going which is great to see. The volunteers are so friendly and helpful. They make the Thursday evenings so much fun for all the members but also for the carers who attend as well. Club 2000 is a great group. I am so glad my son Lee has accepted going, I feel it has enriched his experiences of being and accepting other people.
