The SLF Recreation Service (SRS) offers a comprehensive programme of recreational activities, specifically designed to promote independence and deliver high levels of consumer satisfaction. Our team of skilled staff, qualified programme instructors and dedicated volunteers provide essential supports and encouragement to facilitate the rehabilitative process, and enhance quality of life.
The SLF Recreation Service adopts a contemporary, proactive attitude to the promotion, inclusion and participation of its members in a diverse range of recreational options, some of which are conducted within the Centre and others in the broader community.

The programme includes:
- Arts programmes (painting, printmaking ceramics and other experimental projects).
- Intellectually stimulating crosswords, quiz and problem-solving activities.
- Model railway and model-building facilities.
- Lifestyle activities.
- Special events and social functions.
- Computing within a well-equipped, adaptable computer section, including knowledgeable technical assistance, and voice-recognition software.
