Socialise is a drop in for adults with disabilities.  It runs 4 days a week from Higher Blackley Community Centre.  We aim to provide safe meaningful day time activities for our members.  We get involved in baking, gardening, karaoke, quiz's, bingo, art/crafts, board games, exercise classes, pool/snooker, tenpin bowling, sport and much much more.  We bring people together as a community and provide a safe environment for like-minded adults to socialise.  New in 2019 we have a sensory garden with wheelchair access for our members to enjoy. 

Free Trial available to new members.  New to 2019 we now have a weekly Art Class every Tuesday with Lucy our Art Therapist.  

Many of our members attend a weekly disco each Tuesday night 6 pm until 9 pm from the New Inn Public House in Middleton. £5 entrance, cheap drinks and carers free.
