About this service

Our wellbeing activity group is for young people aged 10 to 25. It’s fun, free and full of activities to help make you feel good!

The groups do all sorts of activities. But in each group you’ll get to learn new skills, meet new people and have fun! They’re based on the 5 Steps To Wellbeing programme from the NHS. Those steps are simple, positive things we can all do to support our own mental wellbeing:

  1. Connect with other people
  2. Be physically active
  3. Learn new skills
  4. Supporting other people
  5. Mindfulness

We focus on fun activities to promote well-being and learn new skills including baking, cooking, mindfulness, managing emotions, giving back to the community, sports and crafts.

In addition we run trips in the school holidays which has included things such as theatre visits, museums, Chill Factor, walks and crazy golf.

Groups meet every Monday in term time. During school holidays we offer activities at different times.
