Weekend Sessional Support
The Weekend Sessional Support Service is a form of Weekend Respite that will run every Saturday & Sunday between 9.30 and 4.30pm. The service will operate from one of our day service locations and will provide a base from where people can access the community, take part in activities such as art, games, using the computer or baking.
Although this is run from the day service locations, this is not a day service – the activities will be lower key and only as structured as the person needs it to be.
We recognise that supporting a person with Autism can be difficult at times, and families may need a break, or maybe you have a special event that you need to attend, but no-one to support your family member. We want to bridge that gap and provide the support required for the day.
Support in these sessions will operate a ‘core’ model of support to provide a cost-effective service, people accessing the support will be assessed based on their needs and the costing will be appropriate to the individual.
