WHAT WE DO
The Bowersdale Resource Centre is a Day Centre owned and run by Expect Ltd and we endeavour to work in full partnership with the local community.
The Day Centre is for Sefton residents living primarily with complex mental health problems but it also provides services for people with dual diagnoses. In addition it is able to provide services for people living with a learning disability at a Day Opportunities rate.
The Day Centre is predominantly grant funded from Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and for those service users with complex mental health problems the service is free. For those living with a learning disability a sessional fee allows people to access all the facilities of the Day Centre without any additional charge.
The Centre provides friendly and respectful support to people with mental health problems and/or learning disabilities in a non-clinical setting and offers a wide range of structured activities which focus on skill building to maximise independence. Service users attending the Day Centre are able to access all activities without additional cost and there is no limit to how many sessions they can attend.
Activities are run every day from 12pm and range from learning to cook, afternoon games, arts and crafts to drama, song writing and a strolling group. Our activity programme runs on a quarterly basis and this allows us to adapt and re-shape the programme based on what service users would like to do and achieve. The Day Centre also offers service users the opportunity to access our sensory room & laundry facilities free of charge.
Additionally, through our partnership working with Cambridge Road Adult Learning Centre, we are also able to facilitate access to a variety of training and education opportunities. Recent opportunities include First Aid training, Defibrillator training, Food Safety training as well as sessions in Maths and English. Health related sessions are delivered on a quarterly basis and these are focussed on issues that service users may face. We have recently engaged with bowel screening nurses from Aintree hospital, diabetes nurses from Litherland and staff from “Smoke Free Sefton” who have all delivered sessions at the Centre.
People are able to access the service via a referral, which must be completed by a Mental Health Professional, GP, Social Worker, Psychiatrist etc. Referrals can be obtained directly from the Day Centre, on request via email Bowersdale.firstname.lastname@example.org or by completing the referral form below and returning it to the address above.
