Supported Lodgings young people make a splash at LWC

The Liverpool, Knowsley and Sefton Supported Lodgings services took the young people they are supporting on an exciting day out at the Liverpool Watersports Centre. The young people had the opportunity to take part in windsurfing through Liverpool's historic docks. 

It was a completely new experience for many of the young people so it's fair to say that a couple of them made became very good friends with the water. As the session went on they encouraged each other and grew in confidence and belief in their abilities. After their triumph with windsurfing they had fun imitating Total Wipe-out on the aqua park. 

The Supported Lodgings Staff would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Liverpool Watersports Centre,

"They were brilliant with the young people"
