A free taster session and full application is mandatory before accessing our activities. The application process has a quick turnaround of just 2 working days, but taster sessions can only be booked using existing session dates. Therefore please allow at least one month from point of contact to point of entry into our services so we have time to book a convenient taster session. A carer is required to attend the taster session with the applicant.
