COVID-19 Appeal

Like many charities across the UK, a lot of our fundraising has stopped meaning we are losing life changing income. Can you help us?

We rely on local people to support us to raise money to carry out our work. We’re really grateful for all the support we receive from the local community.

If you want to help make a difference, please consider making a donation here.  Your support will mean we can help more people in North East Lincolnshire.

Workshops

Art Group

Our Art group is a six week rolling programme. People coming to the group have the opportunity to express emotions and feelings using art as a means of expression.
The aim of the workshop is to start to be more emotionally aware and use art activity to reduce stress and anxiety. You don’t need to have done these activities before, or have any particular skills or knowledge. It is important to note this is not Art Therapy we use art as a way to support individuals to find ways to express themselves.

Peer Support

Our Peer Support Group is designed to give you the tools and techniques to recover and stay well. Our 6 week group has the emphasis on building supportive relationships between group members and exploring ways of managing mental well-being.

We have chosen topics on a range of common mental health problems and lifestyle issues which may or may not be connected to poor mental health. Topics covered are on a range of common mental health problems and lifestyle issues such as:

• Stress and anxiety
• Low mood and depression
• Connecting with others
