The Next Step Service, a Manx Care skills development facility, will be closed for two days this week due to staffing issues,

The service, which promotes independence through the restoration of lost skills and the development of new ones, will not be available all day today and Thursday from 2.30pm. Brunswick Gardens will remain open.

The Next Step service is a referral only service which offers structured sessions, as well as drop in, where clients choose their own level of participation in the activities on offer. Service users can access craft, gardening, computing, woodwork and other sessions.

A Manx Care statement said: ‘The Mental Health Service apologises for the inconvenience caused as a result of this temporary closure.’
