History

BASE was started in 1987 with the idea of bringing together the adults of our area in a congenial friendly and supportive atmosphere. With this is in mind we started adult education classes. We opened B.A.S.E. Resource Centre in January 1998. We are running up to 20 classes per term, ranging from Computer to Psychology and Art to Flower Arranging. In 1995 a counselling service was established our counsellors, see clients on a voluntary basis. Our building is also used by other parish groups, i.e. Football Clubs and Residents Associations.

The Future

We have achieved a great deal but now we must look forward to the future. In order to grow and develop new strategies, we need to take a fresh look at ways we can serve the adults in our community. In the near future, we hope to introduce some services for the elderly to tackle isolation and loneliness for those who are housebound. Plus, the recession brings its own problems for many and we need to plan and develop services that will help people cope with this new situation.
