Netherton Feelgood Factory
Netherton Feelgood Factory is a community-led, healthy living centre, operating in Sefton in Merseyside. Our mission is to help local people improve their health, well being and quality of life.
The Feelgood Factory provides services for the whole community from childhood to old age, in order to promote health and well-being as holistically as possible. Our programme of activities are delivered both in the centre and through outreach work elsewhere in Sefton.

At the moment the following activities have restarted in the Feelgood Factory:
Tuesday (10-2) - Mental Health Chats
This is a chance to have a one-to-one chat with our Mental Health Worker, David, if you are feeling stressed or depressed. This isn't counselling; just a chat with someone who will understand. To book a place, phone David on 291 8028.
Tuesday Morning (10-12) - Creative Writing.
If you fancy expressing yourself in writing, whether that be through fiction, poetry, plays or memoirs, this will be for you. You won't become a Charles Dickens or J.K. Rowling but you will feel a whole lot better and probably enjoy yourself into the bargain. No skills or experience are necessary. Price £2.50 a session.
Tuesday Afternoon (12-2) - Mental Health Support Group
The Mental Health Drop-In is now a support group for the time being because it is necessary to book places in advance. Meet with others who are finding life a bit difficult at the moment in a supportive environment.
Wednesday Afternoon (1.30 to 2.30 and 3 to 4) - Feelgood Learning
Feelgood Learning is a group of people who like to keep learning in a friendly atmosphere. Although we can't meet initially for our full two hours, each person attending will be given a pack to continue reading at home. At the moment, we are looking at the history of Liverpool. Price £3.50 per session.
Thursday Morning (from 10 a.m.) - Men's Walking Group
A chance for men to get fit and to meet other men through a weekly walk starting at the Feelgood Factory.
Thursday Afternoon (3 slots from 12 noon) - Good Afternoon Social (GAS)
For those who just fancy a meet up with some friendly faces and a natter over a cup of tea. Price £3.50 per person.
Friday - Walking Football
The NAC, Glovers Lane, Netherton, 12pm-1pm £3 per person. 1st week free.
Exercise classes For details and availability contact Philomena on 291 8022.
Except for the Mental Health Chats and exercise classes, please phone 291 8010 to book a place on the activities above.
It is important that everyone who wishes to attend sessions books a place in advance. We will not be able to admit anyone who turns up "on spec". Numbers are restricted in all activities but we will endeavour to fit you in although it may not be the time slot of your choice.
