Pursuing our interests out and about in Northamptonshire is something many of us look forward to. Being able to enjoy a day out, try a new activity or just spend quality time with others can make a real difference to our lives.
Our Social and Leisure service gives people the opportunity to do these things and more. They’re great places to make friends, learn new skills and have fun.
A wide range of people use our activity and skills groups, including people with physical disabilities, people with learning disabilities and older people.
When it comes to activities, there’s almost no limit to what our service can offer. Fishing, sailing, karate, trampoline activities and swimming are just a few of the activities we can offer. The list is endless mainly because it is decided in discussions with the people who come to our groups.
Alongside activities we offer lots of opportunities for you to learn new skills in a sociable, friendly atmosphere. Get the most out of the internet, take better photographs, or learn how to cook delicious, healthy meals.
We love to organise outings, especially in the summer! Great care and attention is taken to ensure a wonderful experience for you to local attractions, leisure centres, cinemas and shops. We also offer assisted trips to our very own caravan in Skegness!
The support we offer in our service is always based on what our customers want so you will always be involved in what you would like to do. If you would prefer not to get involved in a particular activity there’s never any pressure on you to do something and there will always be other activities for you to enjoy.
When you visit any of the Olympus Care Service’s you will know you’re in safe hands.
Our groups are fully accessible and equipped with aids including hoists and ramps. As well as activities, many offer services like hairdressing, chiropody and beauty treatments. You’ll also usually find a range of food and snacks on offer.
