Jackie's Drop-In Centre is an award winning centre for adults with disabilities run solely by volunteers, we are currently based at St Michael's House, Norton Way South, Letchworth Garden City. We started with only 6 services users and now have over 200+ users thorough word of mouth with no direct advertising with users visiting our centre from all over Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
At Jackie's we offer a safe and relaxed environment where adults with disabilities of various ages can come and meet with friends new and old and participate it various activities such as arts and crafts, pool/snooker, gaming rooms, internet enabled computers, beauty treatments, day trips out, third party hate crime reporting hub and free courses throughout the year all for just a £1.50 entrance fee.
Due to the ever growing demand for our service we will be locating to a larger premises in March and this will be provided by Letchworth Heritage Foundation, the work needs to be completed by the end of March 2016 running two buildings to try and cause minimum disruption to the service users as possible. Our current building that we occupy has been sold and is due to be completed in March.
The new premises requires a full renovation to bring it to the standard where we can offer our much needed service this will include partition walls, electrical and plumbing work, flooring, additional toilets, kitchen, sensory room and full décor throughout fully functional external lift, the lift will ensure that the activities on the upper floor will be accessible to all meeting the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
With the move to a larger premises we aim to double our service and to help many more adults with disabilities by advertising to 30,000 home within our local community and to raise considerable awareness.
We are a purely self funded centre, and receive no public or government funding.
We and our service users would be very grateful for any donations made, fundraising so we can complete the project and to ensure many more adults with disabilities have somewhere to go where they can feel safe and relaxed and to develop their social skills and confidence and to beat social isolation.

Jackie's Drop-In Centre plays an essential resource within the disabled community with people traveling up to 30 miles to use our unique centre, if we can't meet the funds for the project we will have to close our service which will have a detrimental and lasting effect to our service users, with the 3 year lease we have been granted unfortunately we are unable to apply for funding to move our centre forward so we desperately need your help so we can continue.
