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 resource and Drop-in Centre for Sefton residents living primarily with complex mental health needs. It also provides services for people with dual diagnoses, and Out-of-Borough referrals are reviewed on an individual case by case basis.
The Day Centre is predominantly grant funded by Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and for those service users with complex mental health needs the service is free. Service users who live within one our Expect Supported Living or Residential Services also have the opportunity access the service.
The Centre provides friendly and respectful support to people with mental health needs 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 costs and there is no limit to how many sessions they can attend.
Activities run every day Monday to Friday from 12pm and range from learning to cook, afternoon games, arts and crafts to drama, song writing and a strolling group. The activity programme runs on a quarterly basis and this allows us to adapt and re-shape the programme based on service user needs and we encourage service user input as to what individuals would like to participate in and achieve. The Day Centre also offers all service users unlimited access to our sensory room & laundry facilities.
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.
Access the Day Centre Service is via a referral. This must be completed by a Mental Health Professional, GP, Social Worker, Psychiatrist or a Community Practise Nurse.
Referrals can be obtained directly from the Day Centre, on request via email Bowersdale.email@example.com or by completing the referral form below and returning it to Bowersdale Resource Centre, Crescent Road, Seaforth L21 4LJ.
