Our Wellbeing Programme started in January 2017, funded for three years by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.
The Wellbeing Programme is a semi-structured pathway, supporting service users to improve their mental wellbeing by engaging with a range of activities based on the “Five Ways to Wellbeing”. Once service users start to engage in activities they are automatically and seamlessly enrolled onto the Wellbeing Programme.They then have the opportunity to develop their own personal Wellbeing Toolkit, in which they can, if they wish, keep a record of what they have learned in their recovery journey, including wellbeing strategies, booklets, relaxation CDs, information and other resources. We also promote Asset-Based Community Development practice to support beneficiaries’ recovery journey in their community.
Once service users have completed the Wellbeing Programme, they are be able to engage with the Keeping Well Programme, which will provide less structured ongoing activities to support people to maintain their wellbeing.
