The “brilliant staff and volunteers” at the Sandpipers Centre in Southport have been praised by the town’s MP.
Sandpipers is one of four UK locations in the UK operated by Revitalise, a national charity which provides respite care in a holiday setting for disabled people and carers. The charity was founded 50 years ago.
Southport MP Damien Moore has now contacted the Government’s Care Minister Helen Whateley to invite her to Southport to visit the centre.
He said: “I recently visited the wonderful team at Sandpipers, a respite facility on the Promenade run by Revitalise.
“Sandpipers offer short-term respite breaks for adults with disabilities and their families. They operate as a resort hotel, but all rooms are fully accessible to those with additional care needs, and trained staff are always on hand to offer support.
“Their brilliant staff are supported by a dedicated team of volunteers, who have all done such fantastic work through the pandemic.
“I was delighted to tour the site and learn of their exciting £3.5 million expansion plans. I will be doing all I can to support Sandpipers as they embark on this new and exciting chapter, and I have written to the Care Minister to invite her to visit this vital Southport asset.”
Revitalise creates revitalising breaks filled with entertainment and new experiences, backed up by 24-hour expert care and much needed reassurance for guests.
The charity provides everything you’d expect from a holiday, backed up by excellent nurse-led care and an army of brilliant volunteers.
At Revitalise guests don’t just get respite care; they get a break, a real holiday. That’s what makes the organisation different.
