Local community celebrate May Logan Healthy Living Centre Transformation

The May Logan Healthy Living Centre in Sefton was celebrated with a free community event for residents.

The centre has recently undergone an eight-month long refurbishment to create a brighter, more flexible space for use by the local community. The May Logan Healthy Living Centre helps to improve the health and wellbeing of residents from childhood to old age, providing accessible support to the people who need it most in the local area.

The Centre provides a whole range of services and is home to Alder Hey clinics and Liverpool Women’s Hospital community midwife team. It also offers several other services such as audiology, gynaecology, diabetes prevention, specialist mental health support, new-born hearing screening, smoking and alcohol support.

Onward Homes, a leading North West housing association, built the centre and manage this on a day-to-day basis, whilst core funding is provided by NHS Cheshire and Merseyside. The community event saw guests explore the results of the recent refurbishment, visit information stands from local services, complete free mini health checks from Living Well Sefton mentors, and enjoy complimentary therapies from Sefton Opera.

The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Clare Louise Carragher said:

“It was a pleasure to visit the May Logan Centre for their re-launch on 4th October, this centre does a huge amount for the community, and it was wonderful to meet so many partnership organisations involved with the centre’.”

Andrew Brown, Director of Housing and Specialist Living at Onward Homes said:

“The location of the May Logan Centre is crucial; it is situated in an area with a range of challenges around mental and physical health and wellbeing. We are grateful to the long-term partnership we have with the NHS that enables us to provide the local community with this modern facility.”

Julie McNicholas, May Logan Centre Manager said:

“We are proud that the May Logan Centre is a well-used resource within Sefton and the wider Liverpool City Region. We look forward to welcoming the local community and seeing them enjoy the new and improved centre.

Approaching the refurbishment with future proofing in mind has equipped us to address the ever-changing needs and complexities of community-based service provision. We will continue to be a central point that everyone in the community can enjoy for years to come.”
