Please can we ask, out of kindness to our neighbours, that cars are not parked in Woodbyth Road or Southlands Avenue (either side of the Centre.) You may park in our drive (please double-park if necessary) and there is plenty of on-road parking further along Dogsthorpe Road or in Exeter Road, Cecil Road and Brownlow Road. If you have mobility difficulties please let us know in advance and we can make arrangements for you to park in the drive. Thank you for your understanding.

Free with Centre Membership
The community areas of the centre are all on the ground floor. There is a smooth path accessible through the gate on the corner of Dogsthorpe Road and Woodbyth Road leading to the front door. There is one small, curved step to the door, one small up-and-over door sill into the porch and another into the hallway. Each step is no higher than 4 inches (10cm). The doors can be opened wide enough to easily accommodate someone in a wheelchair. We are planning to make a removable ramp to avoid the need to be pushed over the steps and currently have one ramp which fits into the porch. In the interim we ask that, if you have them, please bring any portable ramps of your own to assist you over the steps. Once in the hallway, all areas of the centre are accessible. There is room for a wheelchair to fit face-on to the toilet to facilitate forward transfers.
We meditate on straight-backed conference-style chairs and there are cushions on which you can rest your feet to make yourself comfortable. The meditation room is fully accessible with plenty of room for a wheelchair.
If you have any other queries please contact us at the centre. We are happy to help you in any way we can.
We have a bookshop selling meditation books and CDs. You are welcome to make purchases during the course. We accept cash, card payments and cheques.
