We are run by Club Soda!
Club Soda is a group of adults with learning disabilities, creating exciting social and creative opportunities in Croydon for ourselves and for other people.
We put on regular live events including Soda Beat, a popular gig night featuring musicians with learning disabilities from across the UK, and Soda Crew DJs, a popular DJ night featuring sets from DJs with learning disabilities.
We are; Friendly, ambitious, supportive, proud, experimental, forward-looking, welcoming – and successful!
We formed in 2009 with the help of Croydon Council and we are now a registered charity.
Our vision – the world we want to see
We want Croydon to be a place where people with learning disabilities are as happy, social, creative and valued as everyone else.
Our mission – how we’re achieving this
Club Soda’s mission is to create opportunities and change perceptions. We create opportunities for people with learning disabilities to be happy and social, creative and productive. And we change perceptions about people with learning disabilities, and about Croydon.
We do this through social and creative activities which empower and excite us, and which include weekly workshops in DJ-ing and music making.
