The Wellbeing Café Project
We are a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (Social Enterprise) known as ‘Loughborough Wellbeing Centre CIC (Ltd)’ that has been delivering monthly evening wellbeing cafés for adults who experience mental health problems in the Charnwood area since October 2015.
The café provides them with a safe, supportive and welcoming place to go when other support services are closed. We aim to support people’s recovery and resilience to mental health issues and encourage a peer support network that will enable them to feel part of the community again.
Whilst we are all having to be careful during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are now running our cafes virtually on Zoom.
You can access these from click on ‘Join a meeting’ at the top of the webpage and type in the code for the café activity you would like to join. You can choose whether or not to have your video on, we don’t mind and you need to allow access to your microphone to be able to chat with us.
