What it is

It's a place for eating your lunch, using games consoles, playing board games and relaxing. There is also an activity each time - you can join in if you want to but you don't have to. Tools and materials for each activity are provided. 

The Social is not about drinking alcohol and there is no pressure to talk to other people if you don't want to. 

For games, we currently have; Bug Bingo, a chess set, Countdown, Monopoly Deal, Ticket to Ride and Zip It.
