Club Soda provides a much loved and valued service for the community, and has been supporting Croydon residents for over 14 years.
We are the only disability-led organisation in Croydon providing creative, music and media opportunities for people with learning disabilities. Our advisory board, the AdFizzory Group, is made up of adults with learning disabilities from different areas of our charity who help make creative decisions about how we run.
We are a charity for Creatives, Campaigners & Gig Goers!
We run weekly workshops in music making, djing and media. We mentor artists, musicians and media creatives, who produce original music, deliver live events and perform in venues across London.
Our Gig Buddies Croydon project matches adults with learning disabilities to volunteers with similar interests so they can enjoy the things they love together. We fight for the right for adults with learning disabilities to Stay Up Late and access their local nightlife, music scene and other arts opportunities.
Our Leisure Link Project is a group for people with learning disabilities and supporters who meet once a month to talk about arts and leisure. Members produce a monthly magazine about what’s going on in Croydon that’s inclusive and accessible, review venues & events and produce a popular Podcast.
We have a rebellious spirit and want to shake up our local community for the better. Everyone has the right to enjoy a social life, be the last on the dance floor or be the DJ!
We need your help so we can continue to offer and expand our programmes to reach those who do not know about us! We are raising money to enhance our workshop spaces and buy new equipment for our media team.
Thank you for your support.
Olly, Chez, Evie, Rachael, Loraine and Brandon!
