People can find out more about the facilities and activities on offer at a recently refurbished centre for people with disabilities.

Action 4 Independence will be throwing open its doors on Friday (28 October, 2016) to showcase the centre, on Albert Road, Wolverhampton.

Action 4 Independence provides specialist services for adults with physical, sensory or learning disabilities, from day service activities to arts and crafts, leisure activities and employment, education and training advice. It is used by a number of support and social groups which meet at the centre regularly.

Councillor Sandra Samuels OBE, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said: "Action 4 Independence has recently been renovated to create a light, spacious, modern and welcoming centre.

"There is a new domestic kitchen, improved lighting and decor, an IT room and new raised beds in the gardens, meaning people in wheelchairs are able to take part in horticultural activities.

"The centre also now has more rooms which can be used by community groups and local businesses, as well as WiFi throughout, making it the ideal location for meetings and other events.

"The open day is an excellent chance for people with a disability, carers, social workers, commissioners, health providers and the general public to see this very popular facility for themselves."

The open day takes place from 11am to 2pm, and as well as guided tours of the facilities, also includes a drama performance and musical celebration to mark Diwali.
