A Busy Break.

Following the success of the adult purchased holiday program in the July holidays, Purchased Options again offered a holiday program to help families with respite support over the September break. Family feedback has continued to be positive with families commenting on how helpful it is to have an activity program for their young adults running during the Balanced Options break. Holiday time respite can be very difficult, especially as some families still need to work during the break.

Purchased Options provided activities on all five days – Monday to Friday –  and again everything was completely booked out very early on. Everyone had a great week and thoroughly enjoyed all the different outings on offer –  the movies, beach, market, animal farm and the pizza day. It was really nice to see good friends socialising together and to see new friendships developing between people from different IOE Balanced Options service sites.

Our young adults were happy to have something enjoyable to do during the break and families were happy with the respite support provided – over 260 hours across the week!

Purchased Options will again be offering respite activities across the Christmas break, so stay tuned.
