ACTIVITIES AND SERVICES

PINC - Activities and Services

We are proud to offer a wealth of activities and services across both Wokingham and Bracknell Forest Boroughs, giving children and adults with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to access provision, facilities and opportunities which will enrich their lives and empower them within the local community.

Not forgetting that siblings, parents and carers deserve support and opportunities to share experiences and empower them, we also offer a large amount of activities and support to engage the families and carers of those with a learning disability.

Can you help support our mission and deliver on the promise that ALL people matter?
