As a fun and friendly organisation, Ecas provides all kinds of opportunities for physically disabled people to get together and enjoy themselves. As a help towards costs all clients are asked to pay fees of £1.15 per hour for their activity and, for those who meet a set criteria, they can apply for a grant to assist with transport costs to and from their activity. Transport grant applications are not affected by the suspension of the Grants Fund.

Our activities are all designed to be fun, enjoyable and sociable weekly gatherings for people of all abilities. No previous knowledge or experience is required.
Please note: Anyone attending an Ecas Activity is precluded from being matched up with a befriender as part of our Befriending Service. Likewise, anyone currently matched up with an Ecas befriender is precluded from attending Ecas Activities. We are happy to discuss this with potential clients prior to referrals and applications being made, or when there are changes in circumstances.
