The Wellbeing Project is a Big Lottery funded project aimed at supporting people in Crewkerne, Frome, Glastonbury, Langport, Shepton Mallet, and Yeovil and their surrounding areas to improve their mental wellbeing. The groups will focus on improving confidence, life skills, assertiveness, social skills and training and employment opportunities.
Each group will be 3 hours long and will include both a taught and creative session related to the individual weeks’ content in a 12 week rolling programme, and our Support Workers will offer short 1-1 wellbeing checks as well as individual guided goal setting support. Individuals are able to come for as many weeks as they like, and may chose to do more than 12 weeks, or even return to volunteer!
