What is the Wellbeing Service?

The Wellbeing Service offers a range of recovery-focused groups, social spaces and wellbeing activities for people who are struggling with their mental health. These are usually held at our main building in the centre of Bradford but are currently offered online via the video conference service Zoom because of the coronavirus outbreak. The Zoom groups include virtual break out areas where you can take time out if you need to.

We’ve had to change our timetable temporarily. Details of online groups can be found on our events calendar.

Who is it for?

Anyone aged 18+ who lives in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven and feels in need of support. You don’t 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 register for 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.

Wellbeing groups

Our open wellbeing timetable is varied, from tribal drumming and mindfulness to creative writing and singing. We also usually run closed groups to help you manage mood, anger, trauma and self-esteem. We are trying to offer as many of these online as we can but can only offer a reduced timetable online at the moment. Please keep checking our website and timetable for new groups coming online.
