Individuals of all abilities can participate in activities like cards, colouring, scavenger hunts, cooking, and coffee house socials, and use the gym and pool.

"It gets them out, gives them social experiences, interacting with others, being a member of the public, interacting with different people in sport and in social environments," explained Will Maher, an inclusion support assistant.
