Families in Liverpool are benefitting from fun-fuelled activity sessions for young children which are being supported by Sanctuary Housing.  

Sanctuary Housing supports activities at Granby Children’s Centre

The leading housing provider is helping to support families as part of a five month timetable of activities at Granby Children’s Centre in Toxteth, which brings together a range of services for young people aged up to five years of age.

Families enjoying Jumping Jacks sessions

The investment allows more than 60 parents and pre-school children to enjoy an hour-long weekly session called Jumping Jacks which includes a combination of music, movement and active play which enhances the youngsters’ development.

Sanctuary invests in projects which support its residents

Sanctuary invests in community-led programmes, projects and facilities which address the needs of residents.

Graham Nolan, Sanctuary’s head of neighbourhood partnerships, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Jumping Jacks as part of our commitment to support local families to enjoy healthy lifestyles. Sanctuary aims to support the communities in which we operate and this is part of our ongoing commitment to the L8 area of Liverpool, working with partner organisations like Granby Children’s Centre.”

Jane Macmillan, Family Link Worker at Granby Children’s Centre, added: “Integrated working between the organisations allows this fun activity to happen in our community. The children and their families benefit greatly from this experience.
