Heads Up provides a therapeutic environment and a range of services, support and guidance for adults of all ages recovering from or living with mental health needs, including Dementia and other difficulties.
It boasts excellent facilities including welcoming work spaces, a communal kitchen and a large garden with outdoor seating areas.
Our team of workshop co-ordinators focus and structure their sessions carefully to provide relaxed, engaging learning experiences which give people the opportunity to rekindle skills, learn from new experiences, encourage self-management and personal development and empower people to develop personal reliance and make informed decisions about their future with greater confidence, knowledge and hope. We provide support to enable individuals to establish links to their local community and in particular access information that may be difficult to obtain such as education, volunteering and employment opportunities.
We believe creative activities can help develop transferable skills, improve confidence and give people a real sense of achievement. Individuals can build friendships in a safe, supportive environment enabling them to become more connected to their community.
Our programme of workshops and activities is varied and expanding, as we work and consult with our clients to develop a programme that reflects their needs. We currently offer the following workshops:
• Creative Activities
• Memories Workshops
Our Memories Workshops not only enable those living with Dementia to spend time with others in a safe, nurturing environment but also provides a vital respite for carers and families. Activities throughout the day are very much based on individual preferences and can include arts and crafts, cooking, spending time in our Healing Garden, sharing memories and singing along to favourite music.
We could not carry out the valuable work we do without our committed team of volunteers. If you would like more information on joining us on a short, or long term basis, or would like to carry out some fundraising, please feel free to contact us:
