Cookery and baking


We utilise the produce we grow to make soups, curries and other dishes.We also make biscuits, fudge, pizza, gingerbread, cup cakes and much more.


There is a role for everyone in the preparation and cooking process. We then share what we have made and eat together or take it home for our family or friends.

Dog walking


We walk dogs for Wolfwood Animal Rescue.


We collect them in our van and take them to parks or other nice places to walk them, this keeps both the dogs and us fit and healthy.



We go cycling at Salt Arye and ride the adapted bikes. Sometimes we ride in the sports hall and sometimes we ride outside on the cycle track.



We go to Salt Arye to join in with their disability muti sports activities and we also hire the climbing wall and fitness studio there.







Yoga sessions


We have yoga sessions each week in a yoga studio with Rebecca. In this gentle yoga class we work to carefully stretch, strengthen and relax the body with simple and beautiful physical posture sequences.

Our greenhouses


There is plenty to do all year round in our greenhouses and poly tunnels. We grow plants, veg, herbs and do hanging baskets and containers. We have won awards for the horticultural work we have done

How do people access Piccadilly’s Support Service? 


The first thing is to arrange with us to come and have a look round and find out more about what Piccadilly has to offer. It is possible to do a taster session to get a feel for Piccadilly if the person wishes to do so. If the person has a Direct Payment they can make arrangements to start directly with Piccadilly, if they don’t have a direct payment they will need to contact Lancashire County Council social services customer care, or their social worker if they already have one, to arrange for funding to be put in place.
