Heswall Day Centre offers a variety of activities both based in the centre, and out in the wider community. Our staff team support people in our service to engage in a wide range of activities. We have a sensory room on site filled with colourful and relaxing lights and music.
We have the use of our own minibus to allow the people we support to access activities in the wider community, and we are always looking to seek new opportunities for them to experience.
To see the impact of the work we do helping the people we support develop their skills and confidence, please visit our Case Studies page.

Heswall has recently introduced a new activity timetable with a different layout/structure. This now includes more sensory sessions as well as up-beat exercise sessions. The timetable continues to include community visits. By adapting the timetable, all people we support have had input and chose which session they would like to join on which particular days. Questionnaires were completed with people we support to ask what activities they want to see on the timetable and this is now what we are working towards.
With Easter approaching, Heswall are going to be having a visit from the Kare Plus team who have a mascot “Kare Bear”. We are planning a chocolate and tea afternoon which will also include a performance from the people we support at Heswall who have been learning new signs as part of singing hands. The purpose of the group performance is to build up confidence gradually so that we can begin to look at performing in larger environments.
