Details of Organisation and Service

aebal leisure is a forward thinking support service that helps individuals with learning disabilities
and/or mental health issues to access the community on their terms. We promote independence and
have supported vulnerable adults to pursue new interests, build confidence and develop their identity.
Every aebal session strives to be a unique experience and one that creates great memories.

FRIENDSHIP
aebal supports in small friendship groups as well as on a one-to-one basis. We have noticed from
experience that it can be difficult for individuals of varying abilities and interests to engage in large
group activities. This often leads to an individual becoming either bored and under-stimulated, or
frustrated and excluded. aebal have the versatility and awareness to find like-minded people and
bring them together through leisure activities of their choice. We believe there is huge value in
this approach as it helps individuals to grow and develop socially and to form genuine friendships.

MENTORING
Our service is often much more than providing community based activities. Many of our service users
are in the transition between ending full time education and becoming young adults. Our one to one
support in particular has been invaluable in helping individuals to manage this stage of life and plan for
the future. Our approach to sessions provides a level of freedom and control which can act as a
catalyst for improved self-belief. Confidence and expectation levels are raised leading to a more
positive outlook on life.

CREATIVITY
We spend time getting to know each individual; learning about their interests and aspirations. This
enables us to be really creative with the activities and the support we provide. We access the
community in an extremely inclusive way; encouraging individuals to choose their activities and
plan their own sessions. We believe that it is important for the individual to feel that we are there
with them, not for them.

INCLUSIVITY
aebal does not have a set list of activities. We try to be as versatile as possible and are always coming
up with new ideas and introducing new activities. We believe individuals are often limited by the
barriers that society creates, rather than by their disability. By understanding each individual we can
help reshape their community and make it a more accessible and inclusive place.

VERSATILITY
aebal sessions provide a much needed outlet outside of colleges and day services. The majority of
our sessions are delivered in the evenings and at weekends which is when individuals can often
feel the most isolated. We all need interests and activities outside of our working hours which is
why the service really works. Typically, we support a couple of friends to spend a few hours
together one evening each week participating in an activity of their choice. Simple
