See What Our Customers Say

My son Nicholas left council day care and joined Active Support in 2013. He thoroughly enjoys the new way his support is delivered by the team. Each day different activities are on offer. The team look for potential in each group member and help them to enjoy their chosen activity. I have met many of the group and can see that they are all happy and content with being a part of Active Support. Well done to Steve, Cettina and Maggie for doing a great job.

Stewart Watson

The staff at Active Support have supported my son to transition from a large day centre to an improved personalised way of support. The team provides the right combination of routine with extra activities which meet his needs and keeps him healthy, active and happy. Staff provides a professional and caring atmosphere and always go the extra mile.
