On Wednesday 25 January, our Chair Jean Willson presented a talk to over 40 guests about the history of Centre 404 and her experiences growing up in the borough of Islington, and as a family carer.

Jean took her audience through the decades introducing it with music. She spoke about what was happening in the decade; what her family was doing; what was happening in the learning disability world, and how the centre was founded and grew.

Jean has been involved with Centre 404 for over 40 years, and an associated exhibition was displayed in the main hall where the talk was held documenting the history of the charity.

It’s a new year, a chance to set goals, start new hobbies and a perfect time to get involved in volunteering.

It has been proven that volunteering boosts self-esteem, employability and health as well as being rewarding to the individuals involved.[i]

At Centre 404 we offer a variety of roles, from developing admin and people skills on reception to being a travel buddy for someone with a learning disability, helping them gain independence, confidence and build up a relationship.
