THE SOUTH STANLEY PARTNERSHIP 

At St. Stephens we provide a very wide range of activities including groups for people with special needs, various levels of fitness programmes from seated exercise to aerobics, craft groups, war gaming plus many more. We have a community cafe with meal delivery service available. We have a community food bank for people experiencing financial hardship and we offer suspended meals.
