Activity Services

All service users within Dolphin Homes receive an individual package of activities within their person centred plan, in accordance with their needs and abilities, likes and dislikes.

Dolphin Homes provide in-house pastimes and offer complementary activity programmes featuring a wide range of hobbies and leisure pursuits with the aim of building on existing skills and developing new skills.

We are totally committed to providing opportunities for service users to access and experience all the leisure and education facilities available.
