Valued in your community
At Furness Avenue, we are fortunate to be located in a vibrant residential area with cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a post office, library and beautiful walks along the coast. For people who like to stay active, Formby Pool Trust provides year-round access to a gym and swimming pool.
In nearby Southport, there are lots of things to do, including Southport Pleasureland, Pier and Beach, Marine Lake Promenade, the Model Railway Village, a Vue Cinema, Tenpin Southport for bowling, theatres, art galleries and high-street shops and banks.
People also like to visit Liverpool, which has numerous museums and art galleries, Liverpool ONE Shopping Centre, the Liverpool Empire, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Imagine That Science and Discovery Centre. And we’re spoilt for choice for beautiful walks - the docks, Toxteth Park, Wavertree Botanic Gardens and Sefton Park are just a small selection.
Liverpool is also home to The Reader Organisation - a charity specialising in shared reading to improve mental wellbeing. Located in Calderstones Park, people can visit the Reader Cafe or the Storybarn to join shared reading sessions, where stories are read aloud and then discussed.
Living at this service
Furness Avenue is ready to welcome someone of any age or gender. The people we support here are aged between 31 and 53, and have learning disabilities, ADHD, autism and mental health conditions.
People here enjoy gaming, gardening, spending time with family, playing the guitar, driving, karaoke, walking, swimming, gymnastics, visiting the day centre, shopping, cooking, bingo, going to the disco, listening to music, watching television, and being in the community.
At Furness Avenue, people choose how they spend their time - meetings are held every four weeks to decide on what kind of activities we should do. People particularly enjoy going to Torquay and Blackpool. We’ve even been to Italy and Centre Parcs.
“Furness Avenue is a big house in a very affluent area. It’s clean, modern and has a homely atmosphere. The people we support here really get on and enjoy each other’s company.” Manager, Furness Avenue
