Working in the Community through therapies
FREE SESSIONS over the telephone or zoom
We welcome referrals from all organisations who feel their beneficiaries will benefit. See a list of types of people; issues; reasons for referrals. We also welcome self referrals using our Project Referral form.
Through funding, we are able to offer further free regular zoom or over the phone sessions for those needing to talk. We are also continuing to run this through our long term programs; Low Cost Clinic and Complementary Health Pain Clinic.
These are for adults over 18 years old, especially but not only, for people living with long term health conditions; disabilities; cared for and their carers; for children with disabilities; over 70s as well as people who are suffering from isolation, anxiety and/or worry.
Previous sessions have proven to be really helpful for people who haven't been able to go in to see their doctors as regular as before, or see many relatives to help support them through the many changes in their lives along with the Covid-19 pandemic anxiety and worries.
We have a range of professionals in their field who are ready to talk people through pain management; breathing techniques; mindfulness; coaching; mentoring; counselling; issues with job loss and more.
NB. We do not take the place of the doctors (or long term counselling) and people still need to refer to their GP first and foremost.
Tesco Bags of Help Covid-19
Through donations, fundraising and dedicating 10% of successful bids we have been able to run our Low Cost Clinic and Complementary Health and Pain Clinic for people living with long term health conditions, disabilities and their carers. For children with disabilities and over 70s we have provided this for free. Currently we have been unable to see any of our long standing beneficiaries nor accept any new beneficiaries for face to face sessions. This fund has helped us to be able to offer:
20 FREE virtual sessions - 1 hour each (zoom or telephone can be used) to those in need, dealing with long term mental or physical issues, to talk to one of our facilitators/therapists about how to manage on a daily basis
They are likely to go very fast, so if you are in need, or you know someone in need of help, please contact us asap.
Neighbourhood Communities Development Partnership - Wellbeing and Employability Project
We are pleased to be able to get involved on the front line, being the lead organisation and working in collaboration with Evelyn Community Food Store to assist them in getting much needed food parcels to those in need at this time. We are also working in collaboration with We Matter UK and Plot Coffee all locally based in Deptford and Evelyn wards, Lewisham. We will see how this project develops according to the current crisis and adapt accordingly to meet local needs.
Thank you to MIND for their support during Covid-19 to help us pivot our services.
