Pos+Ability is a charity that provides a structured exercise programme for people with long-term physically disabling conditions. We currently operate in Ely, Littleport, Soham and Histon.

3. Supporting clients to participate in the exercises;
4. Leading quizzes and activities during the refreshments;
