Living at this service
Poachers Lane is ideal for a woman of any age. The women we support here have different mental health needs. They enjoy their routines, keeping busy and peace and quiet, so someone with a similar outlook is very welcome here.
Their interests include shopping, working, cooking, listening to music, watching television, going to the cinema, arts and crafts, socialising, and spending time in the community.
At Poachers Lane, people choose how they spend their time. Day trips to Southport or Wales are favourites and each year, people enjoy going to Blackpool as a group to enjoy a five course meal and a show.
“Poachers Lane is a very homely, lovely place with lots of support. The staff enjoy working here as it is small and accessible. There is a very happy atmosphere and the residents feel safe and secure.” Manager, Poachers Lane
