Wild and Wonderful Well-being
Funded by The National Lottery, this promises to be an epic and life changing experience. Although this programme can no longer include a residential in nature, we are being hosted by Keswick and North East Adventures for part of our journey.
The aim is to allow for you to reach your full potential, let go of old pain and patterns, manifest the life you need, and connect with others sharing the same dreams of recovery. Whatever is making you stuck in your life, can be changed in our 7 week Wild and Wonderful Wellbeing Programme. The programme uses a mixture of therapeutic interventions, multiple activities/adventures in nature, and inner explorations around mental space. With Maps of consciousness and traditional stories, you will certainly be given the opportunity to bloom.
To participate, you must be available for outside working, be able to access Newcastle inner city, accept change and intervention and be willing to share your story with others.
The programme begins on Friday 21st of April, and ends on Friday 28th May. Contact us for more information and eligibility criteria
Coronavirus Response -online support
Thanks to the invaluable support from both the National Lottery and Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, we were able to facilitate two life changing projects which made an enormous difference to the lives of individuals in our community. These projects still ripple positive change into the hearts of our families and children.
With thanks to Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, we were able to move our personal change programs on line, for women in the community, who had suffered domestic abuse and/or had experienced addiction, and to operate a telephone line of crisis intervention, listening ear and a community chat program. During the first lockdown, this was invaluable and the project saved lives of those in our community who were at risk of suicide and self harm.
With thanks to The National Lottery, we were then able to extend this provision, and also facilitated online support groups and successful change and intervention sessions, which once again helped reduce participant anxiety, worry, isolation, stress and helped them increase feelings of connectivity, confidence, trust and self esteem.
We continue to work in partnership with organisations who refer community members to us, and one of our online projects has self sustained itself and runs every Saturday morning for women with a history of abuse.
