    Hi Ami2301
    thanks for your kind welcome and  reply, I have searched on the internet , managed to find a wheelchair dance group but not in my area , it’s definitely lacking in north wales  
    anything to do with wheelchairs and the over 55s , I’ll definitely have a look in the local paper though .
    best wishes

    Welcome!!

    How old are you? Find out what your local council offers. You need to request a needs assessment. Give PHAB a call tomorrow or check their website. If you are into horses, contact RDA. They have a website too. Do you enjoy gardening? Do you love sports? There are lots of adaptive sports worth looking into now. Definitely find out more about them. They are a good way of meeting people. 

    Do you enjoy art? Socialising? The NHS has more information on physical activity that you might find helpful to read.
