About this cause
We provide sports/leisure activities for around 50 people with learning disabilities, keeping them fit and healthy. Activities take place in West Lancashire during the evening and occasionally on weekends. We provide sessional staff who collect the adults, support them at the activities, and then take them home. Families get a break during the night from their caring duties, and we also run a yearly holiday.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our sessions help people come together. Using community venues, we work with families who have adults over 18 with a learning disability. We help the local bowling alley, snooker club, council gym, dance studio, village hall and community centre generate income/keep going, and we work closely with local community organisations and the Council.
