Friends of QE2

Since 1978 QE2 Activity Centre has been providing activity opportunities for children and adults with disabilities.


Over the course of nearly 40 years thousands of people have been able to take advantage of these unique facilities to participate in canoeing, climbing, archery, ropes course and many more activities.


In addition to that, our day services for adults with learning disabilities provide the opportunity to develop work and independent living skills through activities like gardening, cooking and woodwork.


Lots of people support QE2 Activity Centre in their own way – some by volunteering, some by fundraising on our behalf or making donations and others through being part of the Centre’s management committee.


Friends of QE2 support the Centre by helping with fundraising, organising and running events, or involvement in other aspects of work at the Centre.
