FLAG Bedford – Friendship Link and Action Group

FLAG is a registered charity which offers social interaction for adults with learning, physical and/or sensory disabilities, their friends, carers and volunteers who live in the Bedford area. We have up to sixty members.  We hold a Drop-in or Tea/Coffee Afternoon most Thursdays between 2.00 and 4.00pm at Priory Methodist Church, Newnham Avenue.  We also arrange events every couple of months in venues used by the wider community. We are proud to keep event costs to a minimum and lay on subsidised transport.  We have a great group of disabled and able-bodied volunteers, who are on hand to offer support.

Some of our previous events include Day Trips to the seaside, Fish n' Chip Supper, Narrowboat Trip, Ten Pin Bowling, Bingo and Quiz nights, trips to the London Eye and Harry Potter World, Theatre trips and a Halloween Karaoke.

 

Membership

To become a member, ring the number below or email us and ask for an application form. We charge an annual membership fee of £14.00 per person, £21.00 per couple.  You will then be on our mailing list for events and the quarterly newsletter.


Volunteers  

We are always looking for volunteers to help our events to run smoothly.  Volunteer drivers who can spare an occasional evening are ‘gold dust’ for us. Some events require volunteers to help with non-personal support, such as pushing a wheelchair or getting a drink from the bar.  All out of pocket expenses are covered, you get to meet new friends, learn new skills and improve your CV.
