Bedford & District Society

for people with learning difficulties


What we do

Our group is an independent registered charity (No. 218689) but we work closely with national and other local groups to ensure people with a learning disability and their families have support and information.


We always aim to work in partnership with people with a learning disability and all our services support people to live life as they choose.


We are an individual membership organisation and our work is shaped by what our members tell us about their needs and wishes.


We actively support a number of local groups including;

  • Smiley Club – social club for children and young adults
  • Marlins – swimming club for all ages
  • Beds Garden Carers – accessible training and work experience
  • Sparkle Club – social club for adults
  • Star Club – social club for adults
  • Signpost Volunteers – advice and support for people with learning disabilities and their carers
  • Sound Investment – an integrated community theatre company


You will find more details of all of these and more on the Activities pages.
