Focus on: Rebound Therapy

This is the first part of a new feature for the Wigan VIP website. Every fortnight we will focus on a different volunteer opportunity available through this website. This time, it's Rebound Therapy under the microscope.

Rebound Therapy sessions form part of WLCT's Disability Sports programme and involve a range of activities on a trampoline to develop social interaction skills along with physical skills. Individuals will work with a qualified instructor on a 1-1 basis and a programme will be developed based on individual needs. Activities vary from relaxation and stretching to development of shapes and routines. Sessions are open to all young people with a disability “ hoists are available at both sites.

Volunteer duties at Rebound Therapy sessions include the setting up and taking down of equipment, greeting & registering participants, offering encouragement throughout sessions & spotting around the trampoline for the health and safety of participants. If a volunteer shows commitment to the programme then we can look to send them on a Rebound Therapy Instructors course which would enable them to get on to the trampoline with the participants.

Rebound Therapy sessions take place throughout the borough and are all listed in the opportunities section of this website, why not give it a try?
