Participants can attend regularly one day per week for an agreed period of time. Their preferred days and times must be discussed with us in advance to confirm their placement.
We strongly believe that each group and each individuals needs are important and it is our aim to ensure our activities are accessible to everyone. Our flexibility is something which groups value and we try our hardest to accommodate each group and meet their needs. We can discuss how we can achieve each of our activities for individuals requiring more assistance or specialised equipment, adapting the activity delivery so that everybody can participate as fully as possible. We have raised beds in the gardens, a hoist and we can provide transport in our wheelchair minibus.
