At our community social enterprise, we prioritise the mental wellbeing of both our team and the individuals we serve. We strongly believe that by prioritising accessibility, inclusion, and mental wellbeing, we can create a positive impact on our entire community. This year, we were excited to announce the launch of two new community projects. These initiatives are made possible through the profits generated by our event hubs and quiet rooms, as well as the generous donations and grants we have received.
Community Quiet Tents & Hubs
The first project, Community Quiet Tents & Hubs, is a collaboration with the Royal Borough of Greenwich and CC Events. Our goal is to make community and local events neuroinclusive and accessible to individuals of all minds. We are committed to giving back to our local community by providing easy access to support and a safe space for individuals, both young and old, to engage with trained professionals in mental wellbeing. Through this project, we aim to normalise neuroinclusion and prioritise mental health within our community.
The second project, School Hubs, focuses on the mental health and wellbeing of young people. We are partnering with schools and education providers in the Royal Borough of Greenwich to establish permanent quiet rooms, sensory spaces, and wellbeing rooms for students. These spaces will serve as essential sanctuaries for any child in need, regardless of the reason. It is alarming to note that one in six children aged five to sixteen were identified as having a probable mental health problem in July 2021, a significant increase from one in nine in 2017 (Young Minds 2022). By providing supportive spaces that enhance their sense of psychological safety, we aim to ensure that young people in our borough have easy access to the resources they need to support their mental wellbeing.
If you would like to learn more about either of these projects, please feel free to reach out to us using the contact form. We are eager to share further details and discuss how we can work together to make a positive impact on our community’s mental wellbeing.
