Recreate NZ plan and facilitate the ADSA social clubs. They also run Dinner Club which brings together both adults with intellectual disabilities, and those without, who love good food and need more opportunity for developing diverse social circles. They aim to promote valuable friendships and inclusiveness as well as healthy eating through a dinner party style setting. Dinner Club is informally aimed at those over 25 but they do not discriminate, anyone is welcome!

They are looking for more support so they can host these volunteer-run dinners more often, and accommodate more fabulous people! If you know anyone keen to become a dinner coordinator or a regular guest, then please email Sarah Ferens for more information.
