Community Wellbeing Programme

Here you will find the latest on our Community Wellbeing Programme!

The Community Wellbeing series is a selection of 4-week courses, monthly drop-ins and peer support group Feel Good Thursdays. Each session is designed to help people living with anxiety, depression, social isolation, bereavement, trauma and any other life circumstances that are affecting their wellbeing. You may be referred to us by a health professional but we do also accept self-referrals.

The Community Wellbeing courses provide a welcoming space for individuals to safely explore new skills and tools to help them navigate life's difficulties; we hope to have fun along the way and we're delighted to see so many returning faces! The sense of friendship that is fostered during these courses is one of the reasons we love putting them on. It's hard not to come away feeling more at peace with yourself.

‘Something clicked in me, on the last session. The only words I can think of to describe the feeling is, I feel like I can finally breathe, it feels like doors have been unlocked. This is the beginning’

Ways we can help

  1. By offering a subsidised rate for all our classes and workshops, we are allowing everyone to access wellbeing, regardless of their financial situation.

  2. All of our Outreach sessions can be accessed by self-referral. This means you don’t have to be part of an organisation to join in, just get in touch.

  3. We are proud to be included in various charitable networks which allows us to be connected with those who may need us most.

  4. Many of our sessions can be accessed online, meaning you can join in from anywhere.

  5. Our Outreach team are always keen to follow up with participants so you can continue communication after the sessions finish, if you wish.

  6. All of our tutors are quality and DBS checked, allowing us to provide you with the very best practitioners in their given field.

  7. The Isbourne is one big family of support! We love building connections with people and being part of someone’s pathway to wellbeing, from group courses, one-to-one therapy and social opportunities, we are here for you.

The understanding of being able to go at your own pace. Not being judged by anyone on the course: the meditation has been amazing and has helped me to cope at home, it's helped my family too.

We’re discovering that Tai Chi is helping with my anger. Learning techniques that can help me say ‘I’m getting angry and I CAN stop this is incredibly important
