“Our Day Services and Memories Workshops aspire to improve the lives of those suffering with Mental Health problems, including Dementia by enabling choice, control and opportunity in a safe and comfortable environment.”
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.
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.
Our Memories Workshops not only enable those living with Dementia to spend time with others in a safe, nurturing environment but also provides vital respite for carers and families. Activities throughout the day are very much based on individual preferences and can include but are not limited to arts and crafts, cooking, sharing memories, Tai Chi, singing and dancing.
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
We need your help so we can continue to offer our existing services and develop new and exciting workshops! Heads Up is dependent on voluntary donations from the local community to enable us to provide the vital services our clients require.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
