Bootle Stadium

7 August 2006 

Pulse has been asked by the Bootle Stadium Management Group, Merseyside, to provide support to enable the Group to understand the implications of re-opening the local sports Stadium. The Stadium was closed by the Local Authority in 2006 due to budget restraints. The closure has removed the ability of local people to access quality and affordable sports and recreation activities, and it is hoped that Pulse will identify achievable options for how the Stadium may be opened as a financially viable facility.

Money Maze Evaluation for Age Concern

31 March 2006

Pulse is now concluding an evaluation of Age Concern Halton's operation of the Money Maze Project, which is a national Project spearheaded by the Department of Work and Pensions aiming to raise awareness among older people of the Payment Modernisation Programme. The Programme is especially targeted at hard to reach older people who have limited access to support services and have not taken early opportunities to convert.

The evaluation focused on Age Concern Halton’s delivery of the Project, the extent to which specific quantitative outcomes had been achieved, and identifying key lessons learnt that will enable Age Concern Halton to better deliver short-term target driven projects in the future. 

 

 

Feasibility Study for Outpatients' Facility

6 March 2006

The Tuke Centre, as the outpatient service of The Retreat York, is assessing the potential to redevelop a new outpatient facility more suitable to its work. Pulse Regeneration has been commissioned to develop a feasibility study to ascertain the viability of this.

A first step in the process is to seek the views of users, including clients, visitors, and staff, to determine the desired physical layout of the new centre. Following this options for the new centre will be drawn-up, before development of a funding strategy that will seek to secure financial support to meet the capital costs of the new facility.

Dates are to be announced for delivery of the workshops, anticipated in June 2006.
