Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Bradbury Fields – The Be Active Service

Group activity for blind and partially sighted adults.

The Be Active Service matches trained and dedicated volunteers with blind and partially sighted adult to support with social activities. This partnership enables visually impaired people to get active and to participate in a wide range of community activities, either as a one-off partnership or as an ongoing, regular group activity. Examples include museum and art exhibitions, social and recreational activities, and theatre or sporting events, to name a few.

Join us every Thursday at 1pm, or get in touch for more information about our telephone version which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home.
