What is the Wellbeing Service?

The Wellbeing Service consists of a range of recovery-focused groups, social spaces and wellbeing activities. Most of these take place in our main building in the centre of Bradford.

Our programme changes from time to time to offer new supportive sessions. The full timetable is available on our calendar or to download:

Wellbeing Timetable Autumn 2019

Who is it for?

Anyone aged 18+ who is based in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven and feels in need of support. You do not need a formal diagnosis or referral to access the Wellbeing Service and there is no cost for any of the groups. 

How do I access the Wellbeing Service?

To attend our wellbeing activities, please come along to a Welcome Group. This is a relaxed, informal session to explain who we are, what we do and which groups could suit you. We will ask for some personal details so we can contact you, and also for some information on how you are feeling. This is to make sure you are attending the best groups to help you on the road to recovery. We will also run through our client code of conduct and GDPR policies.

You can book a space on a Welcome Group by calling 01274 730815 or emailing [email protected] between Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.

What’s the difference between and open group and a closed group?

Open groups are open to anyone to drop in to at any time. Closed groups are usually over a set number of weeks, are limited to a certain number of people and it will be the same people attending each week. There can be a short waiting list for closed groups.
