Wensum Sports Centre Charitable Association

We aim to provide a broad range of activities to help fulfil the needs of our local community. Our charity is voluntary based and continues to evolve as we seek to expand our community asset. Having rescued the sports hall from closure in 2010, we are still aiming to improve our tenure with the pursuit of an extended lease from Norfolk County Council. As individual or group participation, we look forward to seeing old and new friends alike.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Ensuring all signage is dementia friendly and all staff and coaches have a full understanding.
