AFG celebrates 21 years of support!
Today AFG is celebrating 21 years of Being Person Centred;
providing life-enriching support to adults with learning difficulties and mental health needs across the North West.
Service User Alan with Chief Executive Neil Campbell
Founded on January 22, 1992, our first ‘head office’ was an old air raid shelter in Woolton Village, Liverpool. We have grown considerably since then, but have remained community focused and true to Our Vision of ‘A world where people control their lives’.
For over two decades we have provided around the clock, personalised support to people throughout the North West, in their own homes or in one of Our Independent Hospitals.
With our head office based in Knowsley, we have supported thousands of people with learning difficulties and mental health needs since our launch, and are calling on those people and their families to come forward to share their ‘21’ themed stories.
We have unveiled a celebratory programme of events to mark our 21st anniversary including local coffee mornings to encourage community engagement and a showcase event in the summer to raise awareness of the organisation and provide networking opportunities to encourage partnership working.
Neil Campbell, Chief Executive said:
“We’re proud of Our History of taking people from hospitals and putting them in their own homes allowing them to have real independence and choices in their lives.
“Alternative Futures Group has helped thousands of people with learning difficulties and mental health needs and last year alone we enabled over 900 individuals to be successfully supported to build a life for themselves.
“Our services are built around each individual and designed to ensure that all people have choice. We are proud to be celebrating 21 years of putting people at the heart of everything we do.”
Happy Birthday to us!
