Every weekend we also offer a number of different community leaves for the patients to participate in. Friday morning is a shopping trip which gives the patients an opportunity to be able to buy the things they need. It also helps the patients to gain social skills and helps them to manage their own finances. Popular destinations for these trips are Port Talbot, Talbot Green, Swansea, Neath, Mc Arthur Glen and many more. Saturday is a Rambling Trip, this gives patients the opportunity to enjoy some fresh air and also enjoy the exercise while taking in the surrounding views.

Sunday morning is a low stimulus leave which could involve brisk walking around places of interest such as Cardiff Bay, Mumbles, Swansea, Porthcawl and Aberavon Beach (weather permitting). If any of you are interested in getting involved in anything which has been mentioned, ask staff to contact us and we would be happy to come and chat to you and explain anything which you're not sure of.
