New Timbers at a Glance
New Timbers is another member of our creative family of day services for people with support needs, based in Bootle and part of our South Hub.
Our skilled team of staff works with individuals to acquire useful woodworking, joinery, and associated craft skills. As well as being an outlet for the creativity and self–expression of our people who attend, our service also enables friendships to develop within a workshop environment, learning about teamwork, problem-solving, and the world of work.
New Timbers’ talented craftspeople make many bespoke items such as bird boxes, bug boxes, wishing wells, planters, benches, and other garden furniture which are sold to the public.
This is very satisfying for the team members involved. All the income generated is plowed back into more resources for the service. At the heart of the community, the talented woodworkers, make new fences, planters, and benches for the local bowling club and other organisations.
An exciting outlet of creativity for people who attend New Timbers, and at the same time gives them a valuable introduction to the world of work
