‘Ryan and the rest of the team at Leisure Balance have been tremendous help from day one! They help me find activities that I have previously enjoyed and encouraged me to try new activities that I’ve never considered. They’ve been so helpful and supportive with the achievements and goals that I have. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else other than the team at Leisure Balance.’

– Hayden, client

 

‘Leisure Balance has been excellent and have helped me connect back to the community, through connecting me to organisations that I have volunteered with, to others such as recreation for sport and other activities.’

– Colin, client

 

‘Ryan’s strengths were in his familiarity with community and recreational activities, the tailoring of these to the client’s interest, the organisation of care workers and financial resources to get the client to/from the activity and the skill and experience to attend with him and show others how to work around some of the client’s behavioural issues.

Ryan’s willingness to work flexibly and as part of community therapist team, to creatively solve problems has help to maintain a cohesive team approach in supporting my client to achieve his goal “to lead a meaningful life.’

– Wendy, Intensive Support Coordinator

 

‘I found that attending “Leisure Balance” activities was fun and engaging. Alison & Ryan are filling the social gap of people with disabilities . Organising get-togethers for participants and their families & trivia quizzes & making a Facebook page, were all an opportunity to make friends & to continue friendships. All of these were appreciated to keep the social ties during the pandemic isolation.’
