We have a 29 year old Son that attends Princes Park for 3 days a week.
It was his wish to attend this facility from the time he left full time education approximately 6 years
Our son regards his time there as “work” and is always keen to attend. The work is varied and I’m
sure that his confidence has improved a lot.
The staff, without exception, are extremely welcoming and helpful to both our son and my wife and
I. If we have any concerns, they are easy to approach and will seek to resolve any issues
The impact on our son, of Princes park, can best be measured by the last years lockdown. He was
housebound for 9 months with just a computer and a DVD player to keep him amused.
The end of lockdown brought a complete change in his demeanour and he could not wait to return.
I had always wondered what would happen if Princes Park was to close for good and lockdown
confirmed my fear that if that was to happen, there is no alternative out there and it would be a
disaster, not only for our son but for the other clients that attend.
The staff continue to improve their services, despite financial restrictions, by innovative thinking i.e.
5 a side and Tai Chi classes. Both of which our son looks forward to immensely.
Long may it continue.
