This is an alternative to traditional Day Care Services where people with learning disabilities gain new skills whilst having fun with their friends.  We work with groups of 6 to 12 people.

 John McCormack runs the sessions each day with other Drama Professionals / Actors / Volunteers.  John has worked with learning disabled people since 2008. 

He is a TV & Film Producer and Director.   John imparts acting skills, encouraging people to work using improvisation skills. for more information about John's work. 


We make films and impart 'hands on' skills enabling people to operate cameras and to take part in their own Radio Show on WFM 97.2

We are open Tuesdays, Thursdays Fridays 10am to 2-15pm (with plans to open each week day).


People that attend Community Media Crew sessions gain an insight  into acting, radio and TV production and socialising, whilst gaining new skills.

On 12th September 2015 we performed in a large Theatre.  A great achievment for all taking part.  The Play was 'Yes We Can' written by Charlie Gooding who attends 3 days a week.  Since that performance we have developed the idea further to make it a different play, longer, powerful and engaging for school children.
