Choosing the Right Support Ratio for You?

Getting the right support for you is what matters most. In our small group activities (max. 8-10) participants request the type and intensity of personal support they require to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Small groups offer the benefit of shared service costs and are the most popular choice for guests with low to moderate support needs seeking social opportunities, a break away from home or the chance to enjoy other interests.
