Within the house we continually promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility.

We find that the people who live at Aire House are very proud of their home as they are directly involved in creating it.

Individuals get involved in daily duties such as cooking, doing laundry and cleaning, depending upon their ability.

Many enjoy the social occasions arranged by Aire House, such as : eating out, going shopping, going to music concerts, football or rugby matches, trips to theme parks, visits to the local Turkish spa baths and much, much more.
