Out and About go away for a weekend break

Ten customers and two staff - Chris Webber and Freweyni Tzegazaeb - visited Grosvenor House, in Kent for an activity-filled weekend in April.

The group, of all ages and abilities, took part in climbing, archery, the zip wire, team challenges and much more. It was an adventurous weekend, the group had a fantastic time and staff reported that they were amazed at how everyone was willing to give everything a go.

For some families, it was the first time their son/daughter had been away from home and it enabled them to have some much needed time out.

Luke’s mum, Debbie said, “I just wanted to say a huge ...no ...a ‘MASSIVE’ thank you as Luke thoroughly enjoyed his first ever trip away from home and has not stopped smiling! I asked him if he had a nice holiday and he replied “Yes” so I asked him if he would like to go again and he shouted “Yes, please” ...

Out & About hold between 4 and 6 weekends away throughout the year. If you would like to join their mailing list to hear more about them, please go to outandabout@optalis.org and register your interest.
