DISABILITY SUPPORT

Increased access and engagement in leisure and therapeutic activities can improve the overall general health, strength and mobility of participants as well as offer a number of psychological benefits.

Catering to the individual needs of people living with a range of disabilities, our services offer members access to a comprehensive programme of activities designed to promote independence, participation and inclusion.

Our team of skilled staff, qualified programme instructors and dedicated volunteers encourage individuals to build their repertoire of skills, facilitate therapeutic exercises and activities as well as provide a safe and supportive environment for members to pursue interests that challenge their minds and bodies.
