Table of Eight - Held at Conie Ave monthly on a Monday Night from 6pm - 8:30pm

What is a table of eight?

Table of Eight is a fun and safe way to meet others over a lovely meal and learn social skills.  People can come in pairs or by themselves all are welcome. Each night has a different theme such as Christmas in July, Halloween and Chinese banquet. Although it is “Table of Eight” we often have up to 24 guests attending so lots of new people to meet and old friends.

"just wanted to thank you for the information you emailed me. Also wanted to let you know Brad thoroughly enjoyed the night on Monday. He can't wait to go again. That was a surprise for me as he tried to get out of going that afternoon. He even made a friend Natalie.? I think his carer Kristie had as much fun as he did.
Thanks again, it's lovely to see him so happy again, it's been a while."

Support requirements need to be negotiated with the Disco Co-ordinator prior to attendance and all service users with personal care or behaviour requirements must be supported by a carer due to limited staffing on the night.  The aim of these events is for everyone to have a safe and fun time.
