We understand that the current situation may be causing concern and anxiety for people, and we want to reassure you that we are changing how we deliver our services and we will continue to support our communities.

How we can support you

The majority of our wellbeing support is delivered through groups and courses. Throughout the pandemic, we have responded to the needs of our communities and adapted our services to support them the best we can. We have been delivering our support over the telephone and zoom throughout the pandemic and as we see our centre open back up, some of our sessions are moving back into the Wellbeing Centre. We are looking forward to welcoming you back through our doors.

If you see a group or course that you are interested in attending please get in touch, the contact details for each group are detailed below. If you would like more information and additional support  before starting a group please complete our referral form and one of our Wellbeing Coordinators will be in touch to invite you to attend a one to one Welcome session.
