Autism East Midland’s Sherwood Centre day service users jump for joy as they are set to enjoy weekly visits to the I-Jump Trampoline Park ‘Adaptive’ autism friendly sessions.

Held on a Tuesday’s 1-2pm (during term time) these special sessions enable people on the autistic spectrum to enjoy I-Jump’s facilities and the benefits of trampolining in a controlled, safe environment.

Supported by our day service management team and the helpful staff at I-Jump, our service users chose to try this new session out as part of our Service User Voice project. As a high-energy session, they benefit from exercise, social inclusion and of course plenty of fun and laughter. Staff and service users look forward to these weekly sessions and confidence is growing with each visit.


Shahram is pictured (on the left) using the bounce basketball nets; he uses this each week and takes great enjoyment from getting the ball into the basket!  Jordan (centre) is ready to jump and take on the airbag.

David (on the right) is a 2:1 service user at The Sherwood Centre with complex needs.  I-Jump has given him the space and sensory surfaces to explore in the best way possible to meet his sensory needs. David appears to look forward to this session each week. David runs and bounces around the park with his two-support staff, exploring all areas with a huge smile on his face and interacting very well.
