Here at the WellBeing Centre we regularly find people accessing help because they just don't know where to go or what to do. We approached the Lottery to request their support to fund this service as the need was evident but we were not funded for this work previously. This short term project will help us provide evidence of need.
If you or someone you know finds themselves slipping through the net of health and well being services then get in touch for an appointment and we will liaise and do all we can to help you access the services that are right for you. Get in touch for more information or to make an appointment on 01287 204400
We are delighted to announce that in September we are starting a new funded project with thanks to Sport England. It's widely acknowledged that exercise is good for depression and for well being in general.
We will be providing exercise sessions for people who do not exercise becuse of barriers such as longterm health conditions, depression or lack of confidence. The courses will take place within the centre with a maximum of 10 people per class. The classes will be weekly for 6 weeks. After this time people willl be shown options to continue exercising and will have new friends to exercise with. Classes will include Tai Chi, Yoga and Circuit Training.
For more information or to book a place just get in touch.
The WellBeing Recovery group is for people who are in recovery from Alcohol/Drug addiction. The group focuses on WellBeing and has been running for over a year. During this time it has been funded with thanks to the Lottery Awards For All and EDF / Tees Valley Foundation. At times where funding has not been available the WellBeing Centre has supported the group. This group creates a safe space for people to explore any challenges and learn from each other. It explores ways of moving on from a life of addiction back into living a life with new ways of coping with difficulties.
At present this group is funded with thanks to Tees Valley Foundation and Tyne and Wear Community Foundation.
If you think that you or someone close to you could benefit from this group then please get in touch.
