Story

Lace up your support for five WAVE Hub dedicated runners at the London Landmarks Half Marathon!

Our incredible team is hitting the pavement to make a real difference in the Muswell Hill community, where inclusivity is at the heart of everything we do. WAVE Hub is not just a charity; we're a force for change, breaking down barriers and fostering connections between individuals with and without learning disabilities.

WAVE Hub serves as a catalyst for change, offering a welcoming space where individuals of all abilities come together to socialise, work, and create. From our inclusive daytime café to drop-in art and craft activities, accessible exercise sessions, and monthly special events, WAVE Hub promotes community cohesion and well-being.

Your support will directly contribute to keeping our doors open and expanding our life-changing opportunities. As a team deeply embedded in the Muswell Hill community, we collaborate with local organisations, including the Harington Scheme (www.harington.org.uk), CJ’s Bakery (www.cjsbakery.org.uk), and the TreeHouse School (www.treehouseschool.org.uk), providing valuable work experience and integration opportunities for their students and participants.

Our diverse team, including individuals with learning disabilities, brings lived experiences that uniquely equip us to break down stigmas and create a supportive environment for everyone involved.

Every step our runners take is a stride towards a more diverse, healthier, and happier society. Your donation directly fuels our mission to challenge stereotypes and create an inclusive community where We’re All Valued Equally (WAVE).

Together, we run for change; we run for inclusion! 🌟🏅 #RunForWAVEHub #InclusionMatters #LLHM2024

RCN 1171421
Wave Café is a vibrant, welcoming and fun place where people with and without learning disabilities can meet, socialise, and work together as equals. We want to help our community embrace the "we're all valued equally" ethos that underpins all Wave Café activities and remove the ‘service user’ model of inclusion. We do this by facilitating genuinely inclusive activities at our pop-up café in Muswell Hill, The United Reformed Church, London N10 3NU. Wave Café supports young adults with learning difficulties to develop life skills and gain work experience. We offer a number of internships for people with learning disabilities. We offer: - Tasty food and drink at a price point accessible to all - Creative activities to encourage mixed ability mixing, creating and socialising - A friendly, non-judgmental welcome to all, regardless of ability, age or background - A live example of a mixed ability staff team with opportunities - Partnerships with local learning disability provisions (as staff and as attendees). All are welcome to join our inclusive community café every Thursday 10am to 5pm for drinks, snacks, workspaces, art & craft, delicious healthy lunch, and a real community atmosphere.
