The Gap is a charity based in Warwick which is focused on promoting community togetherness and striving to help you achieve your personal goals. We do this by providing a safe, welcoming environment where you can meet existing or new friends and participate in social and physical activities; support groups; volunteering and learning – all with the aim of enhancing your overall quality of life.
We provide a variety of classes, groups and training sessions, including Zumba; Extend (falls prevention and mobility enhancing exercise class); Toddler Group; Job Club; Careers Guidance; Dog Training; Gentle Yoga; Knit and Natter; Sewing; Art Club; IT for Beginners; Tai Chi and many more.
We also run a Youth Club 4 times a week for young people aged between 8-16 as well as a weekly Older Adults Lunch Club. Both activities are very popular with around 25-30 people attending each week. Click here to see the full timetable of activities
In addition, we host a number of important, specialist organisations such as Alcoholics Anonymous; Recovery Partnership (organisation helping people with additions); Youth Justice; Young Carers (respite for young people caring for members of their family); Twelve Steps; Take a Break (respite for parents with children who live with extreme learning difficulties); Springfield Mind; Guideposts (information and advice for carers) to name but a few. Our informal setting makes people feel relaxed and at home, which creates the right environment for building confidence, finding support and aiding recovery.
Finally, we are a valuable place for local residents and organisations looking for a friendly accessible venue, for parties, events and meetings with all the necessary furniture and AV equipment – at an affordable price. Click here for more information on Room Hire.
We have over 2000 visitors through the door every month and cater for all age groups, from babies through to older adults.
