Social inclusion

Social inclusion

We provide a range of activities focused on reducing social isolation, particularly for those from former coal mining communities. This includes:

Thornycroft
Our social day centre based in Pontefract provides a range of activities for those living in West and South Yorkshire.

Open Monday – Friday, those attending can take part in social and recreational activities, crafts, games, advice sessions, and exercise catering for a wide range of interests.

Refreshments and a cooked lunch is provided each day and transport can be arranged if required.

There is a small daily charge for attendees which includes lunch and an additional charge for transport  if required.

You do not have to be a former miner to attend, everyone is welcome but priority will be given to those living in former coal mining communities.

For further information or to arrange an introductory visit please call 01977 703384.

Regional activities
In both South Wales and the North East of England, we provide social inclusion activities through a number of groups held regularly in local community venues.

These groups provide opportunities for those from former coal mining communities to socialise and meet others.
