RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS

Last update issued: 1 June 2020

Please be assured that Adventure Therapy continues to monitor the situation with regards to the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are pleased that we have reached a stage where more time can be spent outdoors. However, whilst restrictions have been relaxed, we must not be complacent and we must be respective of others and remain vigilant.

We appreciate that for many of our participants (our service users), stopping activities may have a detrimental impact on their wellbeing. However, whilst many of our activities take place on a 1:1 basis and predominantly outdoors, it is vital that we consider the health and safety of our participants, approved instructors, volunteers and supporters at all times.

Therefore, we are pleased to announce that we will be recommencing a limited number of activities over the next couple of weeks, taking guidance from the government and Sport England at all times.

Positive mental health and wellbeing is critical at this time and particularly for children and adults with challenging and complex lives. We have consulted with previous participants and parents and our support is needed more than ever.

Initially activities will be on a 1:1 basis only and the first to restart will be surfing and coasteering. Due to the need to observe social distancing at all times, these will be available for children and adults who would not require physical assistance and additionally, are not on the NHS shielded patients list.

If we could help you or someone you know please e-mail active@adventuretherapy.org.uk.
