About LinkLeisure

Link Leisure is a Woking based Charity providing sports, social and recreational activities for children and adults with a broad range of learning disabilities which range from mild developmental delay to profound or more complex needs such as cerebral palsy and severe autism. The Charity was founded in 1989 by a former social worker who, witnessing the isolation suffered by both these individuals and their families, recognised the need to provide them with access to some form of social life.

From very small beginnings the Charity has grown to a membership of almost 500 with some members accessing one activity each month, whilst others attend several on a weekly basis. The members range in age from 4 to 70! The Charity’s work is more than just simply a provision of activities - it offers members the opportunity to develop their confidence and social skills and to form friendships. In addition families benefit from respite when their child/ young person is enjoying a social experience or sports activity run by Link Leisure. Currently the Charity offers a diverse programme of activities which satisfy a variety of need. Children can take part in after school activities such as the IT group, fun swim, youth clubs and art club. Link Leisure also runs school holiday schemes and weekend activities. Just before Christmas a party for over forty children was held at Chameleon in Woking where every child was given apresent donated by a local organisation. Link Leisure is particularly proud to run a nightclub –'Mayhem' - for its over 18s on 6 Saturday nights throughout the year at Quake in Woking. In addition to its programme of social activities for the adults, Link Leisure has a choir (The High Notes), a drama club in association with the Nomad Theatre Group, football and swimming groups. Weekend trips away which the Charity aims to offer each of its members at least once a year and provide a special opportunity for the adults to have a social experience with a peer group.
