Al’s Club Get The Green Light On A New Base

Al’s Club is pleased to announce they have the keys to a new base which will enable them to deliver even more activities and support on a regular basis in the near future.

At present Al’s Club delivers a weekly activity sessions to young adults at Knowsley’s Leisure and Culture Park, Longview Drive, Huyton from 6.30pm till 8.30pm every Thursday.

With a new home Al’s Club will be able to provide a unique service for young adults with a disability 4 days a week from 10 – 4pm.

New activities could include Music Therapy, Aromatherapy, Gardening, Keep fit, Beauty Therapy, Gym, Arts & Crafts, Sensory as well as drop in sessions.

Al’s Club just needs a little help from local people in Knowsley to get the building up and running. Can you help?

Al’s Club founder Debbie O’Brien explains “It’s something we take for granted being able to go out and meet our friends. Most of our members aren’t able to go out alone due to their medical conditions and disabilities. So they may become quite isolated through no fault of their own.

Al’s Club will give & provide choice in our community for any person who has a disability or medical complex needs. Please help us provide a service that’s much needed in our community. This will also give our members a chance to be themselves and be with their friends along with having endless fun. Developing confidence and enhancing the members general health and wellbeing.”

Al’s Club have set up a go Fund Me page  – click here for more information and Debbie will keep us updated on the latest exciting developments! Or head to their Facebook Group Al’s Club

Join Us for a Stroll in the Park

Join us for some gentle exercise and join a very social ‘Stroll in the Park’.

Each month our community group, the Knowsley User Led Organisation will be meeting up at Stadt Moers Park to take part in an accessible guided talk and walk around the park, hosted by Gordon from Knowsley’s Ranger Service.

Our relaxing meet up takes place every last Thursday of the month, meeting at the Stadt Moers Ranger Centre, Pottery Lane, Whiston L35 3RG at 10am – we’ll set off from the centre at 10.30am.

We want to ensure everyone regardless of their disability or health condition can take part in gentle exercise – carers are welcome to join in too.

Please note: Approximate walking time is 30 minutes and importantly you can do as much or as little as you want–no pressure.

Toilet facilities are available at the centre, refreshments are also available, and not forgetting some good company and fresh air!

If you have any specific access requirements get in touch with our support worker Nancie 07715 392 158 and we’ll do our very best to make sure you can take part.

Future ‘Stroll in the Park’ dates are as follows: 23 May, 27 June, 25 July, 26 September 24 October and 28 November 2019. All welcome.

PLEASE NOTE: The original start time (9.30am) has changed due to attendee feedback at our very first ‘Stroll in the Park’ April session. Future ‘stroll’s’ will meet up at 10am and set off at 10.30am.
