The Terence O'Grady Club

A dream realised

The Terence O’Grady Club was founded in the early 1960s by Dr Terence O’Grady.

As The Local District Health Officer, he felt there was a need for a club where people with learning disabilities could meet to socialise in a safe environment.

Dr O’Grady died shortly before the club's first meeting in September, 1961. However, he would have been justly proud if he could see how his dream had been realised.

Currently about 100 members aged 16+ and many helpers come together once a week and enjoy an evening of recreation and entertainment.

As we are a very successful Club our membership is full. However, with such a large membership there are always a few members who move on. These in turn leave space for new members to join us.
