Lancashire Wellbeing Support
Our services target people with mental health needs who are struggling to engage with their local community, may be experiencing social isolation and require sporadic/preventative support to maintain their home. We would accept referrals from any source, including self-referral.
Social Inclusion service – This would develop groups and events, including wellbeing sessions, workshops and networking opportunities. Opportunities would be opened with the aim of becoming self-sustaining where possible. These groups will be open to individuals who might be waiting on lists for formal services, and will focus on creating sustainable peer networks.
Holding ‘Touch Base’ sessions at our Accrington Hub – These sessions will offer appointment based support for individuals to manage issues, including practical problems in their home which negatively impact on their mental health, access to IT resources (e.g. to address benefits issues), and support to maintain community connections.
Gardening Club at our Hope Street Service – Focussing on building skills and growing vegetables for sustainable, healthy living. We can also link in with local colleges to look at gaining formal qualifications, and partnerships with business and organisations that include gardening, with a goal to create a pathway to employment. Previously we have been able to establish self-sustaining initiatives similar to this, including our Sandy Lane initiative (in Accrington) which was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
