Turnstyle is our original community hub, established to provide day opportunities for people being supported by Style Acre in their homes. Now based at our head office at Howbery Park, Wallingford, Turnstyle covers two buildings and provides a large training kitchen, music room, art room, IT suite, sensory room, general activity rooms and two gardens. People who come to Turnstyle have access to the facilities at the business park which include a restaurant, sports facilities, a shop and beautiful grounds where we often hold activities such as yoga and games in the summer months.
We provide a wide range of meaningful activities for the people we support – the majority of these are community based. Activities are regularly reviewed with the individual and evolved to meet their interests and needs. We support people in trying out new activities and there is open access to the management team at all times.
As well as our regular sessions, we organise day trips and participate in community activities and events. Staff work closely with Style Acre’s speech and language therapists to develop and improve communication to suit the needs of individuals. Staff are in regular contact with carers and we pride ourselves on our strong relationship with families. With a large fleet of vehicles, we collect from and drop-off to an individual’s home. This ensures consistency of support and good communication between the service and carers or family.
