Part of what we do proactively at the Pendlebury Centre is model relationships – sometimes pressing ‘reset’ on the way we have learnt to interact with others and, in turn, developing more positive ways of being together.

We call our two main break times ‘Morning Social’ and ‘Lunch and Midday Social’ – and we use this time not just as an opportunity to relax (and get fed!), but also as an opportunity to practise social skills.

One of the ways we do this is through playing games – this may seem common sense but it is well documented that the playing of social board games, card games etc. is on the decline as solitary game apps for mobile phones and tablets increase.

At the Pendlebury Centre our pool table is regularly used by students – and all in good fun. The current pool table was over ten years old and looking a bit battered & bruised – so this week we were pleased to welcome a new addition to the hall:
