Tuesday Night Club

Tuesday Night Club is a social group for young adults aged 18 to 30, based at Didcot Baptist Church in Didcot, running from 6.00pm to 8:30pm on…you guessed it, Tuesdays!

Do you find yourself sitting at home bored, watching the football, thinking “there must be more to Tuesdays than this?” Well, there is….come and join us! The club is led by young adults, for young adults, so you are responsible for what we do. We get up to lots, including gaming on the PS4, going swimming, having theme nights, and eating dinner together.

Our meeting space is the perfect place for relaxing and kicking back with people your own age – we have a large hangout room and a breakaway room if you prefer a quieter atmosphere. You can spend time with your old friends and make new ones. We chat about everything from football and pop music to sex, relationships and healthy eating.

In addition to having fun the aim of Tuesday Night Club is to support young adults in transition build independent social lives. Through peer based learning, it is a stepping stone to accessing mainstream groups.

Our location (map) means we can take advantage of all Didcot has to offer: pubs, takeaways, cinemas, swimming pools and lots more!

Once a month we have a ‘Tremendous Tuesday’, where we do something special, usually based in the local community; we visit restaurants & pubs, go swimming, bowling and lots more. 

TNC is easy to get to using public transport – it’s a quick bus or a 15 minute walk from the train station. There is also plenty of parking at Didcot Baptist Church if you drive or are being dropped off. People travel from all over Oxfordshire to attend and we can support you to find a safe way to get to us.

It’s free the first time you come and just £5 thereafter. If you’d like to come along or learn more please contact Sarah or call the office on: 01865 236 119.

If you’d like to learn more, take a look at the FAQ’s below

Who is it aimed at?

TNC is for young adult’s aged 18-30 years with mild to moderate learning disabilities and/or Autism.

What level of support is offered?

The club is facilitated by trained staff and volunteers who are fun loving, approachable and experienced.

Staffing is typically on a 5:1 ratio, but you may bring your own Support Worker, PA, or sibling along if you need a little more help or feel a bit anxious about your first visit!

Where is it?

The club is held at Didcot Baptist Church. You can get there from Didcot Parkway by a 10 minute bus ride or 15 minute walk. There is also parking at the church if you drive or are dropped off. If transportation is the thing stopping you from coming, let us know and we’ll try to help!

 

What time does it run?

Club starts at 6.00pm and finishes at 8.30pm.

How much does it cost?

Your first session is free, after that it costs just £5.

You can pay this on the door or we can invoice you on a monthly basis if you prefer.

There is no charge for support staff, PA’s, or siblings.

Do I need to bring any extra money?

Squash and hot drinks are available free of charge, and we usually provide a small snack (most often we prepare it ourselves as an activity choice)

Once or twice a month the group goes out to get dinner from a local takeaway and eats their evening meal together at the club. We wouldn’t recommend you bring more than £5-10 for this.

Once or twice a month we will either cook dinner or provide a meal, for a small donation (£2 or £3). We will let you know in advance if this is happening.

If we are doing an activity that requires extra money we will always let you know ahead of time and offer alternatives if this cost is prohibitive.

Staff can support you to look after your money if necessary.

Do I have to come every week?

No, you can come to TNC as little or as often as you like.

I'm interested, what's the next step?

If you have never used Yellow Submarine’s services before, you will need to get in touch with Sarah and let her know you would like to join.

This is a very simple process that she will guide you through.

How do I find out what is going on at TNC?

Once you’re registered with Yellow Submarine, you can join our weekly email list, where you’ll get updates each Friday about what’s coming up on the following Tuesday.

 

Everyone who attends TNC has a part in planning and choosing activities, we are always keen to hear your ideas, please contact Sarah with suggestions.

What are Tremendous Tuesdays?

Tremendous Tuesdays are evenings when we go out and about either into the community or further afield! These trips are planned a couple weeks in advance and happen on the first Tuesday of every month. They normally cost a little extra and may finish a little later, which is why we plan them in advance!

To know when these events are on you can join our mailing list once you’re registered for TNC.
