Here at Mary & Joseph we offer a wide variety of activities for residents to improve physical health, social networks and self-esteem. We believe that engaging in activities in the local community encourages social inclusivity and challenges addictive behaviour. Andy, our activities co-ordinator produces a weekly activities programme catering for a wide variety of interests. We have three vehicles on site, including a 12 seat Minibus with wheelchair access
At present our activities programme includes a weekly visit to St.Marys Irish Community Club in Levenshulme, swimming at the local leisure centre, weekly social club at the local library trips, bowling, fishing, community gardening and conservation, walking football and local walks. We also work alongside Manchester City Councils Community Engagement Team and can help residents to set up an individual membership at a local gym.
We also organise a holiday for our residents and staff once a year, usually offering a choice of two destinations with pre-arranged activities and days out.
