Based in central Banbury, SABRe is a lively community hub for people with learning disabilities and autism to find flexible, affordable support, essential for those with limited personal budgets. It’s a safe space to make friends, develop confidence and independence.
Developing life skills such as cooking, independent travel, budgeting and shopping is a big part of the support on offer. Leisure and social activities include games, dance, arts and crafts, singing, IT and baking. Outside of the hub, people enjoy activities and events in their local community with their friends and the support of SABRe’s close-knit team. Swimming, walking, horse-riding, golf, bowling, cinema and farm visits are all popular.
Karen says: “I like coming to Style Acre for more than one reason. I have made lots of new friends. One of the friends I have made I now spend time with out of Style Acre… I get some support and advice with health, diabetes and healthy eating. I am able to talk to someone when I feel sad and down.”
Jamie says: “Style Acre has been helping me with making new friends and has helped with getting me into taking part in activities, supporting me in volunteering and helping me stay motivated in my job search.”
