“Before my son attended Parity it’s fair to say that we were beside ourselves with worry for his future. After the school system, people like my son are left high and dry and it’s very frightening. I was lucky enough to meet a client who attended Parity and then the sun came out and it’s shone ever since.”
– Parent

Parity for Disability’s day services exist to meet students’ needs and promote their wellbeing. With the right support, the students achieve amazing things.

They have the opportunity to keep using the skills gained at school and build an understanding of their choices and options as adults. Staff develop a range of activities with students based around each person’s Individual Programme Plan.

Most of the students have little or no speech, so we invest in communication training for the staff, specialist approaches and devices.

Equipment includes eye-controlled technology, sensory spaces, interactive screens and projection systems.

Students take part in mainstream life, shopping, eating out and visiting places. They interact with people, meet visitors and act as ambassadors.

So that everyone is as safely involved as possible in their activities, the staff team includes a qualified physiotherapist who advises on positioning, appropriate equipment and tailored exercise programmes.

The staffing ratio at Parity allows for essential requirements on staff including 2-to-1 or 3-to-1 support when necessary and catering for acute care requirements, as well as recording and writing reports, training and review meetings.

The day services run Monday to Friday with students choosing to attend anywhere from a half day to a full five days per week. They are based at:

  • 92-94 Whetstone Road, Cove, Farnborough, Hampshire GU14 9SX
  • St Martin’s Church, 231 Upper College Ride, Camberley, Surrey GU15 4HE
  • 23 Salisbury Grove, Mytchett, Surrey GU16 6BP

We respect families and carers as experts on a student’s needs and wishes and involve them fully in decisions regarding the student.
