A DJ skills project for people with learning disabilities has proved a top hit in Wimbledon.

Eight people with learning disabilities took part in the DJ skills project at a centre in All Saints Road, Wimbledon where Nick Carling from fresh track DJ workshops taught them how to use professional equipment and put on a DJ set.

Merton Council’s All Saints Centre launched the new DJ skills project for people with learning disabilities to help them run their own nightclub called Funky Feet.

The team at All Saints has relaunched Funky Feet, which gives people with a learning disability a chance to have a dance and socialise with their friends.

Over 100 people attended the first Funky Feet nightclub event earlier this year at Tooting and Mitcham KNK Stadium with further nights being planned over the summer.

The council’s director of community and housing Simon Williams said: "I’m delighted to see the All Saints Centre is providing a wide range of workshops for people with learning disabilities in Merton.

"I’d like to congratulate everyone who took part in the DJ skills workshop and put on a great night at the Funky Feet nightclub."

If you know someone who would like to attend one of the Funky Feet nights, get in touch with the All Saints Centre on 020 8274 5388 or email AllSaintsCentre@merton.gov.uk.
