Brief description of what services your organisation offers:
Exclusive use for Enable Ability: Autism Support at the Portsmouth Gymnastics Centre. Gym is a great opportunity for children and families to get together in a secure environment with lots of fun activities.
Where the service is based:
Portsmouth Gymnastics Centre, Alex Way, Portsmouth, PO2 9AD.  It takes place on the first Saturday of every month during term time from 5.30 - 7.30
What the organisation provides - types of interventions and support:
Gym provides a unique experience for children with ASD to interact and socialise with their siblings and peers in a safe, secure and fun environment. There is a fully trained gym member of staff on site and a PASN - Enable Ability representative there to answer any questions that parents may have. We also ask parents to remain in the gym with their children.
Eligibility Criteria:
For children and young people affected by ASD, siblings are also welcome to attend this session.  Parents are asked to fill in a consent form and inform volunteers of any social requirement or other issues they feel might affect their child in the course of attending gym.
Member cost: 1 hour - £4
How can this service be accessed?
We run 2 sessions back to back once a month on a Saturday between the hours of 5:30 - 7:30pm.   Due to health and safety reasons, only 20 children are allowed in the gym per session.
All tickets must be booked in advance prior to attend the event via eventbrite: http://pasn.eventbrite.com.  If there are extenuating circumstances that mean you cannot book online, please let us know and we will try to work with you to resolve them on a case by case basis.  We do recommend that children/youngpeople try to attend every session where possible.
If you have not used Enable Ability before then you must have a Care Plan in place before attending events, this can be done in a home visit or at the activity prior to its start.
