Looking for a project or activity to join?
On the home page each month we put one of our projects ‘In the spotlight’ to showcase their talents and tell people a little more about what they do. However, this will be just one of the many innovative projects you can find at ECHO. With 25 to choose from as well as other programmes and events such as the Summer Activities and Community Games, ECHO is a leading provider of services for adults with learning disabilities.
ECHO runs many and varied activities during the week, some in the evening and weekends. They include day opportunities, which provide a full day of supported activity where people work together to learn new skills. This could be in theatre skills, horticulture, cooking and working with textiles.
Our leisure and social activities include music, sports, arts & crafts and much more in a variety of community venues.
How we can help
Our aim is to achieve good outcomes for people and promote their right to inclusion in the wider community. We provide services which enable people to:
- have real choice and control
- enjoy a better quality of life
- feel and stay safe.
- be part of the communities in which they live
- make friends, enjoy social opportunities and not feel lonely
Join an activity
Squeezing 25 projects onto the ECHO website was going to be tricky so you can read about each one in detail on Herefordshire Council’s WISH website, see link below which should take you straight to the ECHO listings. The WISH website is a way for you to see all services and activities available in your area.
What if you want more information?
If any of our activities are of interest to you, the ECHO office is your first point of contact – 01568 620307. We can then arrange an informal visit to talk about what services you are looking for. Getting to know you as a person is an important part of knowing you will enjoy your time at ECHO and we can make sure we are offering the best support to our members.
If you would like to look at our range of Day Opportunities and Leisure & Social Activities in detail, they are listed here at the Wellbeing Information and Signposting for Herefordshire (WISH) website.
Or give ECHO a call and we can make sure you have all the information you need.
