As a community social enterprise, mental wellbeing in the community is as important to us as it is to the people we serve. We believe that placing accessibility, inclusion and mental wellbeing at the heart of our communities benefits us all.
We have two NEW community projects coming in 2023, funded by profits from our event hubs and quiet rooms, and generous donations and grants.
Community Cafe & Hubs
Working in partnership with hotels and venues who have a clear social purpose and commitment, we will be setting up monthly drop-in hubs allowing members of the local community to have access to advice and signposting around mental health and wellbeing. One in four people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England, and one in six people report experiencing a common mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England (Mind 2022). Our aim is to ensure that people have access to support and a ‘place to go’ to talk to a trained professional in mental wellbeing.
Young people’s mental health and wellbeing has never been so important. Working in partnership with schools and education providers, we will support permanent hubs, quiet rooms and sensory spaces for their students, supporting mental wellbeing and providing an essential ‘place to go’ for any child that needs it, for whatever reason. One in six children aged five to 16 were identified as having a probable mental health problem in July 2021, a huge increase from one in nine in 2017. That’s five children in every classroom (Young Minds 2022). We want to play our part in ensuring that young people have easy access to supportive spaces that enhance their feeling of psychological safety, essential for supporting their mental wellbeing.
