This activity is a fantastic experience, which promotes self-determination.
Many people with disabilities rarely get to do ‘daredevil’ activities. But with the giant swing, they can!
Being hoisted up into the air to the ceiling and released into a big swing could seem thrilling or scary, but we do it with a system of adaptive harnesses and ropes that make it safe and fun.
As well as providing a sensory stimulation experience, the way we run this session promotes choice and self-determination. For example, each person chooses how high they will be hoisted before they swing, and can pull the release when they are ready to fly.
While our Giant Swing is available as a stand alone activity, it can also be incorporated into a programme of activities as an extra if there’s time or in place of another activity if guests would prefer to do this instead.
