Assisting the development from of all children with special needs, from the earliest age, whatever their disability, through all forms of play activities, the centre provides, physio, speech and occupational therapy sessions.  In addition the centre aims to provide and develop it's premature babies group, also offering in-house training for volunteers, parents and staff to enhance their understanding and coping skills to deal with requirements of children with special needs.
One in five people cares for an older relative, and many of these carers are also likely to be in poor health.

Please help us to raise funds for HOYLAKE COTTAGE, your local charity dedicated to helping older people and those with dementia. 
 
As part of a phased development project the new kitchen and administration block is under way and progressing well.  Funds continue to be required for the Day Care Appeal, including the sensory garden which will enable us to continue to provide the highest standard of care, but in the fresh air!     
 
The garden will complete this phase of development and attention will then go to the final phase, the day care facilities which will provide vital care in order to help our older generation maintain their independence, choice and dignity that they deserve.

Many may remember the 'Boys Clubs' from which the YOUTH FEDERATION has evolved.  
Among the many services provided currently, the organisation provides youth led projects within the most disadvantaged communities in our region, focusing on issues such as mental health, loneliness, bullying, social activity, crime and drugs, involving sport, arts, drama, video, music etc.
 
In addition they develop and support young volunteers on the National V programme and hold many activities and events for all young people regardless of background.  Of note in Wirral is a mentoring service for children and young people.
 
The organisation also operates in the most disadvantaged areas, offering practical support and training to various youth groups to ensure that health and safety and child protection issues are carried out correctly.  Providing organisational support, advice, bursaries and other invaluable services to 150 affiliated youth groups the Youth Federation needs funding to continue this great work for our young people.
