As a fun and friendly organisation, Ecas provides all kinds of opportunities for physically disabled people to get together and enjoy themselves. As a help towards costs all clients are asked to pay fees of £1.15 per hour for their activity and, for those who meet a set criteria, they can apply for a grant to assist with transport costs to and from their activity.

We also have a free Internet Cafe at Norton Park. Contact us to book a session.

Our activities are all designed to be fun, enjoyable and sociable weekly gatherings for people of all abilities. No previous knowledge or experience is required.
