A Dudley organisation is offering free conference and meeting facilities to charity groups at its easily accessible Waterfront setting. Dudley Disabled Learning Activities and Advice Centre (DDLAAC) is giving groups the use of its rooms at Cable Plaza, Merry Hill for any event they wish to hold. The organisation is holding an open day on Thursday April 30, 2015 from 11am to 3pm for charities and other groups to see the facilities on offer. A regular Monday pensioners’ club will also start on Monday, April 20 from 12noon until 3pm. People can come and meet for a chat and have a three course dinner including drink for £3.99. Amenities available include free car parking for more than 100 vehicles, air conditioning and wifi, as well as onsite catering facilities. Trustee chairman Steve Daniels said: “We have a wide range of rooms, from small offices for one-to-one training right up to spaces that can cater for up to 700 delegates, all with disabled access. We are keen to encourage local groups to take advantage of our venue which has a beautiful setting overlooking the basin on the Waterfront. “We can also offer catering facilities for all dietary and cultural needs at exceptionally reasonable prices, from £3 to £6.50 a head with unlimited tea and coffee at £1.80 a head.” The DDLAAC was set up 18 months ago with National Lottery funding and is now supported by intu Merry Hill, as well as being self-funded by renting out space to organisations such as the NHS and Ambulance Service. It has been at its present location since October last year. Recently hosted events include a series of successful Heart Start courses conducted by West Midlands Ambulance Service to provide training in the use of defibrillators. The venue is available during the day and evening and the DDLAAC’s events team can help groups through the process of organising and hosting. Other organisations and companies can also book any of the small or large rooms covering a total of 16,000 square feet for any training, exhibitions, conferences or workshops at cost-effective rates.
