At a day centre in my community
What is making days?
Our Making Days service provides structured day opportunities for adults with learning disabilities in both north and south Liverpool. Both services operate Monday to Friday 9-5 and together welcome over 100 individuals in any given week.
Support can range from full to half day sessions. Staff are committed to creating a real sense of community for the people who use the service, regardless of how much they attend.
Our team of support workers were all hired using values based recruitment, and we match each of them with service users based on shared interests and skill sets. They receive regular training and supervision and are focused on working closely with families, carers and other agencies as appropriate.
What makes us different?
Making days is all about helping people to get the most from their day to day lives. Our centres provide the opportunity for individuals to socialise with their friends, meet new people and to develop new skills and interests. Each person who attends the centre has a say in how their day is structured, and staff tailor support around the individual’s needs and goals.
Our activity programme is always growing and changing. Our teams are always looking for new activities to run and the programme is developed in partnership with the service users and their families.
Some of the activities we currently offer are: Football, Swimming, arts and crafts, Spanish language lessons, knitting, journalism, music groups and many more.
Who can access making days?
Making days be used by anyone over the age of 16 who has a diagnosed learning disability.
Making Days can be purchased through Local Authorities, the NHS, personal budgets, direct payments or privately by an individual or someone acting on their behalf.
Our service can be accessed through a referral from a social worker or another professional, or individuals can refer themselves. Just contact our team using the details to the right.
