Creative Support is working in collaboration with families

Creative Support currently offer regular respite to Jack who requires a high level of support.

Jack currently resides full time at home with his family, his parents being the main carers. During one of his stays at Creative Support’s respite service, Jack’s father mentioned his son’s desire to go swimming once a week.  Although they wanted to meet Jack’s wishes, the family had concerns about whether they could safely support Jack to access the pool.

Jack’s father asked about whether Jack could make use of the outreach programme in order to be supported to go swimming safely. Creative Support guided the family through the funding process offered by the relevant authority and a specific package of support was agreed. Jack now attends a weekly swimming session, supported by staff, at his local leisure centre with his father.
