Developing a positive mindset by helping you overcome feelings of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, low-confidence in a no-pressure environment and help you manage your money better.
We also provide support with childcare to enable you to undertake initial training, education, volunteering or work.
Run by our specialist project partners Starfish Services Ltd, our participants have the option to join the Social Hub, which runs activities that will help them break down barriers to communicating and socialising. Currently the hubs are running virtually, but the same support and opportunities are offered to members just in a slightly different way. Members of the social hubs have all been referred by their personal coaches in partner organisations. They are all on the Connecting Choices project and have suffered from anxiety, social exclusion, low confidence, panic attacks, poor emotional or mental health – but together, they support and build each other’s confidence and their ability to participate in society in a meaningful way.
The Connecting Choices programme supports individuals and the local community with the help of our partner charities.
