Gym, previously a service managed by the Portsmouth Autism Support Network, provides a unique experience for children aged 5 to 16 years of age with Autism Spectrum Disorder to interact and socialise with their siblings and peers in a safe, secure and fun environment. There is a fully trained Gym member of staff on site and a wide range or gym and soft play equipment for children to enjoy.

If you are into the sport of tumbles, tucks and foam pit jumps then you have come to the right place!

The purpose-built gymnastics training facility offers all youngsters the chance to explore the soft foam pits safely and exclusively to Enable Ability.
Booking in advance is required for this event as we are limited to 24 young people each session. Please be aware that parents are responsible for their children at all times.
