My Life’s Day Opportunities new name is ‘Life Opportunities’

Here at My Life we’re changing the name of our Day Opportunities to ‘Life Opportunities.’

If you attend our service, don’t worry, you’ll still receive the same high level of support, but you’ll also know better than anyone that our service is about a whole lot more than daytime activities (as much as we enjoy them!) So the name ‘Day Opportunities’ only reflects just a little of what we do.

The service we give is all about looking at the whole lives of the people we support, listening to them and their families and understanding what they can do, rather than what they can’t. This ties in with Wigan Council’s Deal for Adult Social Care and Wellbeing, which views “everyone as unique individuals who have strengths, assets, gifts and talents” to be used.

We support people with aspects of their lives like housing and help with family leadership. We involve them in work and volunteering opportunities, social enterprise and much more.

As Jodie Crompton, Manager of My Life’s Day Opportunities at Leigh says: “We give people the tools they need to feel comfortable and lead their best lives in their own communities. That means helping people to be confident and happy to live independent lives, with the support they need, beyond My Life.”

So in short, the service will continue and develop as it always has, just with a name that reflects more closely what we do. You’ll see our name change gradually, over the next few months.

This summer, we’ve got lots of exciting things planned, including our ‘Under the Sea’ themed programme, which includes seaside trips, beachcombing art, aquariums, sensory water experience, boating and more.  See our flyer here for more details!
