New Online Wellbeing Chatroom Launched

New Online Wellbeing Chatroom Launched

On January 17th we held our first online wellbeing chat over zoom which was very well recieved by the participants. We wanted to create an environment free from judgement, easy to access and open to all.

These chats are ongoing on a Monday at 9-10am and Wednesday at 6-7pm and full details are available over on our facebook page and a dedicated group support page.

They are lead by Stephanie Smith our Online Wellbeing Coach, weve gathered a few participant quotes below:

"I find the well being chat very helpful to just talk about where we're all at after a couple of years of the  pandemic. We all need to be 'real' at times and not just say we are 'fine'. Being able to say how it really is is very important. For myself I have been totally alone the whole time so a zoom meeting like this to 'connect' is very helpful...."

"Well it’s brilliant talking about how we are and feeling. Also knowing that you are helping others by listening.

I can’t say how much it really helps, and talking to someone else instead of just the family."

This was all achieved after recieving a Knowsley COVID-19 Support Fund grant of £2500 from Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside.

Carry the Weight Challenge 2021

Thank You to everybody who donated and helped us raise £3,651 to tackle the growing problem of mental health issues in our great City of Liverpool.
Our Carry The Weight Challenge is aimed at raising awareness of the number of suicides across Liverpool and that number has unfortunately grown. It has risen from 39 to 54 for the year 2020.
That's a massive increase so its imperative we all play our part to drive these figures down and literally save lives.
Besides using these funds to expand our walk and talk program, we are also donating a portion of the final amount above £3000 to another local charity to help with the cause.
You can still donate and share. You can also join our walk and talks or recommend somebody to us.
Stay Safe. Keep Talking ❤
