Sorry, this service is currently suspended. However we are working very closely with the Local Authority and Health colleagues to maintain a service offer at WeCan throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to those assessed by Social Care or Health colleagues as being in urgent need of the support.
WeCan is a club, the aim of which is to inspire, motivate and enable its members to achieve their personal aspirations. Club members are supported to develop the knowledge, skills and resources required to enable them to live a happy, fulfilling and balanced lifestyle.
