Cheesy Waffles Project


About Cheesy Waffles

All about our project that began changing the lives of young people & adults in 2004

The Cheesy Waffles Project is a registered Charity (project) for children, young people and adults with additional needs from across County Durham. Although our project is predominantly for people with learning disabilities, it is not exclusive and everyone is welcome to join. We provide a range of clubs and educational activities, from dance and fitness to cooking and residentials.


Clubs and Activities

We offer a wide range of clubs monday to saturday for mixed ages (onsite & offsite)

We provide a comprehensive range of clubs and activities for members of all ages to enjoy giving the opportunity to develop independent and personal skills, learn new things, visit new places and have fun.


Offsite visits, trips, overnight stays and residentials enable members to enjoy social time without support from family and carers, giving respite and also ensuring positive transition development.


From sports & wellbeing activities, cookery programmes, performing arts, social activities, shopping trips, residentials and more, members will benefit in many ways. They are also encouraged to help local community projects and being part of our aim to raise disability awareness in a positive way.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge came to our community centre to meet our project members and learn about our project. They met many of our amazing members, joined in with our activities, learnt about the project, discussed our members completing their DofE awards and heard some of our interesting stories all in our community garden in Belmont. They even had the chance to play golf with our members. An unforgettable and spectacular day for both our staff and members and the Duke and Duchess themselves.
