aebal Leisure delivers it's support in three ways...
'Support'- One to One person-centred sessions, working closely with family and social workers to meet personal goals. (Hourly rate - Typically DP funded)
'Connect' - Person-centred activities in small friendship groups of two's three's and four's. The focus is on bringing people together and social outcomes.
(Hourly rate - Typically DP funded)
'Groups' - A variety of fun activities delivered to groups of 5 or more individuals. The emphasis is on participation and new experiences.
(Flat rate dependent on activity/travel - self-funded or DP funded)
All three service options share the common goal of enabling individuals to become more active and involved out in the community.
aebal understands that it is as much about forming a positive relationship as it is about participating in the activity itself. Everyones needs are different. We work closely with each person to deliver the right type of support and source the most beneficial activities.
The service is all about choice and some of our service users incorporate all three of the above service options. The benefits are clear to see; Happy, enthusiastic and sociable individuals!
We want to be utilised by our service users in a way which works best for them.
This is achieved from really getting to know the people we support and being creative with each and every session.
aebal sessions are very flexible and take place between 9am and 9pm, 7 days a week and for as little as two hours in length. We are also happy to meet people from home and begin the sessions from there. Very convenient indeed.
aebal Leisure have enabled people who have become isolated at home to start feeling more confident, we have helped create new friendships and we have introduced others to fun new hobbies!
aebal Leisure also collaborate with a number of other services/charities and always encourage the pursuit of new opportunities.
Most of our service users are supported on an ongoing basis but we also support people on a short term basis to build confidence to access other services that maybe a little overwhelming at first.
