Outreach for wellbeing in the community

Jules Allan, our Make a Move Creative Wellbeing Officer, talks about the outreach work we’ve done in 2016.

Over the year we have been developing workshops and projects in the community. We’ve worked in various settings, facilitating sessions and projects with people who may be new to using mindfulness, movement and creativity to support them and their wellbeing.

Self-Care with Shelter

We facilitated a project with Shelter about self-Care, incorporating creativity, mindfulness and movement.

Suzy, the Charity Skills Coordinator for Shelter, said:

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Monday’s session. I felt that you paced it excellently and gave the group the space that they needed while also keeping things focussed. A really beautiful way to support our staff and give them some time to breathe. Thank you so much for offering your time and sharing your valuable skills and interest!”

Time to Change & Keynsham Silent Illness Group

In March we were funded by Time to Change to deliver a project about self-care and mental health, incorporating creativity and mindfulness.

We facilitated a session about managing chronic pain using mindfulness and movement with the Keynsham Silent Illness Group.

“Jules’ warm and inviting approach to mindfulness demystifies the practice and makes it practical to use on a daily basis, allowing us a break from the hectic pace of modern life and a chance to ‘just be’. The workshop for Silent Illness Keynsham was very much enjoyed by the group.”
Dr Sarah Fox, Keynsham Silent Illness Group
