Ken Boyce Centre
We’re a day activity service for adults with autism and learning disabilities in Footscray near Sidcup.
We run lots of different activities at the centre, like computer skills, gardening, massage and a recycling project. We also run a popular shop, cook and eat session.
The majority of our activities take place in the community, like rambling, swimming, hydrotherapy, cycling and bowling.
We have some very good sports teams. We’ve played cricket at Lord’s cricket ground and our football team, Bexley Lions, plays in the South London Special League. When the weather is good, we go fishing.
We like to get creative too. We have put on performances like our Singing and Signing show and we walked down the catwalk like models at our fashion show.
“We go on trips to places like Eagle Heights and have also been on a river boat cruise. We make sure the activities we run reflect the needs and interests of the people we support – but we also like encouraging people to try something new.” Kelly Stedman, Ken Boyce Centre manager.
We had a great day painting, gardening, making benches and seeing the fantastic work the charity does. Jane Small, Barclays Corporate Team

A minibus helps us to do as many activities we can, where venues are not easy to get to by public transport. Kelly Stedman, centre manager
