The team do this by actively encouraging the individuals they support to access activities and hobbies in the local community as independently as possible. Activities include, taking part in horse riding and sailing classes, going bowling, to the theatre and to watch the football, as well as going out for dinner and socialising with friends. Family members and friends are always welcome to visit too.
