    Welcome….

    The Alternative Leisure Service offers personal assistance and respite support to carers in the Lancashire area.

     

    Alternative Leisure understands that it is important for carers to take regular breaks from their daily caring responsibilities and make time for their own needs.

     

    Taking a break is vital to our well-being and quality of life.

     

     

    Carers taking a break from their caring role can also be a valuable break for the person receiving care and support.

    Setting a high standard of support is one of the most important core-values at Alternative Leisure.

    Time to relax

    The pressures of providing full-time care for a loved one is enormous for families and carers.

     

    Everyone at some time needs to relax and recharge their batteries every now and again.

     

    Alternative Leisure Service can help carers to have some time away from their caring responsibilities and start to enjoy some free time.

     

    Having more free-time means that carers can have the opportunity to relax, meetup with friends, enjoy more time with family.

  • Eating out

    Friendships

    Everyone needs friends.

     

    Having good friends can help to improve many aspects of our life. They can build confidence, provide comfort, joy and strengthening of our health.

     

    Sometimes friends like to meetup and join in an activity together, whether that’s going out for a meal and drink, playing ten-pin bowling, walking or going to the cinema.

     

    Alternative Leisure can offer the right support and opportunity to make this happen.

  • Walk

    Walking
