Leisure Direct is an independent charity for adults (over the age of 18) with learning disabilities who live in the North Hertfordshire and Stevenage area. We aim to promote different sport and leisure activities to enable vulnerable members, many of whom are socially isolated, to participate in activities they may not otherwise have access to. 

The programme of events gives members the opportunity to have fun, make new friends and build their   self-esteem in a safe environment with volunteer support while parents and carers are able to benefit from a period of respite.

 Activities

Leisure Direct offers two or three activities every week at different times of the day and week to enable all members to participate.

A broad range of activities are offered and members have the opportunity to say what hey would like included. Sports, art, social activities, theatre trips, days out and a 5 day holiday are just a small sample.

 Volunteers

Volunteers help on the activities, raise funds, help with admin and provide refreshments when required.  Being a volunteer is a very rewarding job and we are always pleased to welcome new helpers.  All volunteers are covered by insurance while on activities and have a DBS checkIf you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact the office.

 Members

Leisure Direct has over 100 members who pay an annual membership fee.

 Committee

Leisure Direct is run by a committee on which our member group is represented.

Equal Opportunities

Leisure Direct has an equal opportunities policy which is that no member will be excluded on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, religion, marital status, age, sex, sexual orientation or financial background.

Specialist Help

Leisure Direct will always attempt to cater for people with learning disabilities and who may also have mental health issues or physical disabilities. However, there may be occasions when members need to provide their own specialist helpers should Leisure Direct be unable to access the necessary skills from its volunteers.   Or if 1-1 support is required.
