Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

‘Give Us a Break’ holiday project

The Lark Lane Community Centre runs an annual project set out to make a difference to vulnerable families in Liverpool, by providing them with a fully-funded residential break to relieve the stresses of life.

Families are taken away to beach locations in Wales such as Abersoch. Locations are a safe haven in a refreshing environment, where children and their families can be set free from everyday pressures and routine.

Many of these families have otherwise never had a holiday.

We believe all children and young people in need have the right to experience a marine environment to play safely and explore.

*Information for the Summer 2021 Give Us a Break project is pending subject to Covid-19 restrictions. For information regarding previous years projects visit
