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.
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.
