Community Living Quinte West supports people to live, work, socialize and participate fully in their community. Our community participation Hub located at 11 Canal St, Trenton, is a gathering place to socialize, learn, build community connections and a meeting place to link before joining community activities.
Working in partnership with local services, we have developed workshops such as Healthy eating on a Budget, Yoga and meditation, Basic First Aid and Healthy Relationships and Me. We are open to suggestions and ideas for the development of future models.
“Club U” provides a large open space to support learning and gathering, perfect for hosting large groups and activities. Presently, we provide a social community for adults with intellectual disabilities between the hours of 0830-4:30 pm Monday-Friday. “Club U” is equipped with a large smart board and gaming room containing a play station 5, X Box and Virtual Reality System. In addition, “Club U” offers a modern computer lab, sports room with pool table, air hockey and an indoor putting green. The large kitchen and dining area space provides a conducive area for meal preparation, cooking and baking. Our goal, starting in November 2023, is to expand these hours to support evening social opportunities.
Our focus for the “Club U” participation hub is to provide many different services to the underserved population in Quinte west and foster social engagement to help combat loneliness, boost a person’s mental health, encourage the development of healthy habits, and increase positive mental health.
Community partnerships can stretch assets by sharing skills and resources. Working together, we can reach several populations of people.
We are open to strategies and ideas that will build more community partnerships. We encourage anyone who is interested in learning more to take a tour of the Participation Hub Building. Anyone interested in more information about Club Unity please email email@example.com or call 613 394 2302.
