Our Hub

Our regular drop-in centres, known as hubs, provide a place for our members to learn new skills, have fun and make friends. Running at six locations across Suffolk, the range of activities on offer is increasing all the time. Our members try their hands at drama, music and crafts, and enjoy games, cooking and relaxing over tea and biscuits.

Each Hub is run by a TBS Area Coordinator and supported by a team of dedicated volunteers. There are between 15-40 members at every Hub aged between 18 and 80! 

Find your nearest one below, and if you'd like to come along, call us on 01787 371333 or email info@thebefriendingscheme.org.uk
