Disability Resource Centre

The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) is a day centre providing services for physically disabled and sensory impaired people living in Renfrewshire.

We actively promote independent living through various leisure, social, educational and employment activities and services.

The DRC is in a light, airy, purpose-built building, surrounded by an accessible garden, close to the centre of Paisley.

We aim to be a welcoming, supportive and inclusive place, where people come to socialise and network as well as taking part in activities.

We are flexible to peoples' needs. Some people choose to come to the DRC for the whole day, while others take part in specific activities.

The centre has a range of specialist facilities including an accessible kitchen, library and club room. A hot meal is available at lunch time with snacks & drinks available throughout the day.

Activities

Some of the activities on offer include:

Art, tai chi, yoga, knitting, history, computing, film making, photography, woodwork, web design, gardening, social sciences, cookery, creative writing, relaxation. We also run some activities out with the centre, including: swimming, sailing, music making and Gaelic classes.

Various disability groups and organisations use the centre for meetings and activities.

Transport

 

The DRC can arrange accessible transport to the centre within the Renfrewshire area although spaces are limited and many people make their own way to the centre by accessible taxi or the My Bus service.
