What is the ASI?
The Attendant Support Initiative (ASI) is a service providing people with additional needs an opportunity to book an Attendant Support Worker through the Active Moreland Aquatic and Leisure centres. ASI staff can assist service users with the following:
- Entry/exit into the centre pools and/or assistance whilst in the pool
- Use of accessible change rooms including personal care
- Use of the Gym including specialised equipment
How to use the ASI
All new ASI clients will need to first complete a service user profile. This will provide ASI staff with all the relevant information needed to ensure you get the most out of your sessions and that a safe environment can be provided during your session. Information includes:
- Type and level of your disability
- Your independence and personal care requirements
- Behaviours that may affect your sessions
- Emergency and medical details
- Your preferred activities and individual goals
- Information on facilities available at each centre
Forms are available to download below or can be picked up in Active Moreland centres. Once this form is completed and assessed you will be able to book sessions at any of the Active Moreland Aquatic and Leisure centres.
When making an ASI booking 48 hours notice must be provided as a minimum, although providing longer notice time is recommended. This will enable the centre to confirm an Attendant Support Worker is available and finalise the booking. All bookings will be finalised within 24 hours and where the requested time is unavailable other alternative times that support workers are available will be discussed with the client.
