The help I received from Lizzie was invaluable. She was so caring and such a lovely person helping me get through the many problems I had in 2020. Thanks Lizzie, you went the extra mile for me and I won't forget you!

600 children, young people, families and teachers

in rural Cheshire West & Chester!

THINKING WELL, FEELING WELL PROJECT: RURAL

Thinking well, Feeling Well Project: Rural

The Thinking Well Feeling Well: Rural project is an exciting 5-year piece of work funded by the Westminster Foundation. 

 

The project centres around promoting emotional and physical health and wellbeing for children, young people and families living in rural Cheshire West and Chester. In line with the Westminster Foundation’s core objectives, a central theme to the project is around early intervention and building resilience and life skills in our young people.

 

As part of the project, we are providing designated counselling services for Bishop Heber High School and Tarporley High school alongside an 18-25s counselling service (available via the Rural Alliance Primary Care Network).

 

We are also working closely with rural feeder primary schools of the two secondary schools, providing a range of class-based and parent/guardian workshops and Mental Health First Aid Youth training for teaching staff.

FEELING GOOD COMMUNITY PROJECT: CHESHIRE

Feeling Good Community Project: Cheshire

Our Steve Morgan Foundation and DCMS supported project has 2 key strands, firstly helping promote the amazing work of local community heroes, both the individuals going above and beyond and the wonderful local organisations and services that have been more needed than ever recently; and  a second family and community delivery element.

 

To help spread some positivity as well as link people with local support, the funding was used to create videos and social media posts, supporting access to services and feel-good stories during lockdowns and COVID restrictions.

The second strand of the project is currently active and provides school-based and community activities working with our community partners. To enable as many families and children to benefit from the project as we can, we are converting our healthy family activities as well as selected school’s health and wellbeing workshops into digital resources.

Children are provided with fun and educational activities to learn how to grow their own plants and create exciting outdoor spaces, with many elements linking back to the national curriculum, whilst adults are offered friendship, a space to talk and support with tackling any issues they are experiencing. Don’t forget the tea and biscuits!
