We empower people to overcome barriers and challenges and to engage with their own wellbeing.
This enables our clients to pursue their goals. We do this through the provision of Information, Advice and Guidance, and wellbeing support and activities.
Information, Advice and Guidance
If you need support with day to day issues and want to feel more in control of things we can support you with solving your problems. Whether you need help to manage your bills, change schools or apply for benefits - we are here to help you to make positive changes in your life and take steps towards achieving your goals.
We have helped previous clients to resolve problems around housing, education, benefits, finance, relationships and much more. If we are unable to help you, we usually know someone who is.
If you are feeling stressed out or overwhelmed, or if you would just like to feel healthier and more relaxed, you can access a number of different wellbeing activities. These include a gardening group, fitness classes, cooking & nutrition sessions, creative workshops and a shared reading group.
We also provide specific emotional support to children and young people who were directly or indirectly affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. This includes weekly art therapy sessions and counselling.
Our Community Wellbeing Clinic offers certified NADA ear acupuncture, relaxation and health and wellbeing advice. Come in, relax or just have a chat with a professional.
The Clinic is open every Tuesday, 2.30-5.30pm.
Sessions cost £1.
Most of our wellbeing activities change on a regular basis.

Women's Empowerment Programme
The Women’s Empowerment programme is a seven week course which gives local women the opportunity to focus on themselves: their needs, aspirations, and ways in which they can successfully achieve their goals in life. The course covers a range of topics, such as creativity, listening and assertiveness, and activities focus on encouraging women to try new things. We also go on a range of trips and run one-off workshops.
