The West House Activity Centres are fully flexible to suit your needs and interests, with a focus on developing skills and independence.
Our daytime support services will work with you to develop a package to suit your interests and needs – from cookery courses at our resource centre to volunteering at a local charity to Zumba at the local gym; we can support all ages and abilities. One-to-one and group support packages are available.
Call our Senior Operational Manager Lesley Reid on 01900 67777 and she will be happy to discuss your options with you.
Travel and transport present many challenges particularly in rural areas such as ours.
Our aim is to provide people with disabilities, wherever possible, access and use of the same means of travel as anyone else within the community. This includes walking, public transport, mobility vehicles and taxis.
Each person’s need for transport will be agreed as part of the support planning process in line with their individual needs and chosen activities. This will include opportunities for training and progression leading to, where appropriate, increased independence.
We work in partnership with Cumbria County Council in helping people to be less dependent upon transport.
We are committed to providing a person-centred, inclusive and positive environment in our facilities and social enterprises for those that we support and our visitors.
