Motherwell Cheshire runs a social prescribing wellbeing activity planner, that is open to all women and girls in the area of Crewe, Winsford and surrounding areas. 

There is no need for a referral and no need to have a diagnosis of a mental health condition, we just want as many women and girls to join us as possible. 

Our Wellbeing Coordinator attends all the activities, so if you require additional support please do email: wellbeing@motherwellcheshirecio.com and Debb will be happy to meet you before hand. 

Our Wellbeing Programme is to break isolations and to encourage friendships in the local community. All the activities that we run are proven to help support individuals with their mental health and wellbeing. 

What's included in the programme?

If you feel that you are in need of support come along to one of our confidential drop-in sessions which provide guidance and advice.

You will be able to talk to a wellbeing practitioner who will offer advice, support and (if relevant) an onward referral.

You can also find out what’s happening within Motherwell and how we might help/support you. (No appointment needed).​

 

It has been proven that singing improves health, happiness and mental wellbeing and relieves symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Our aim is to create a safe, fun and non-judgmental environment for you to make new friends, share experiences and join together as one voice.

The only thing we ask, is don’t take it too seriously; we want you to make time for you, take time for self-care and enjoy yourself!

Our Peer Support group is based in Crewe and meets at West Lodge at the entrance to Queens Park. It’s a safe and supportive environment for women and girls to meet and share experiences with like minded women.

This group meets every two weeks on a Friday 10am – 12noon. 

The group will also be welcoming talks from other local women who will share their skills.  This will include being taught skills such as crafting, crocheting and card making.

There is no commitment to join in, just come along for a chat and refreshments. 

Parkwalk

Should you wish to stay after the group we will also be having a gentle walk round the park otherwise known as our “parkwalk” each week.

Walking really can support your mental health as one of the 5 ways to wellbeing; staying active is important and has unlimited benefits. 

There are countless benefits to reading. Reading for pleasure can increase self-esteem, reduce symptoms of depression, help build better relationships with others, and reduce anxiety and stress.

By immersing yourself in a good book, you can be swept away to a world that is separate from yours, and therefore separating yourself from the dilemmas or stresses you may have.

Come along for a relaxing chat and reconnect with like-minded people whilst discussing the latest book of our choice!

Child friendly! ​

If you have always wanted to stop smoking but never found the opportunity, our stop smoking group could be for you. It is proven that with support around you, you are more likely to give up smoking.

Our stop smoking group meets monthly at our STAR house in Winsford and will be facilitated by a member of the our team who is trained in smoking cessation and is also an ex smoker herself.

This group is a friendly supportive group and each session there will be a different topic to discuss to help you give up/ reduce your smoking habits.

We plan to look at relaxation techniques, support networks and other strategies that can be put into place as you start your journey.

Exploring relaxation can help you look after yourself when you’re feeling stressed or worried. The sense of wellbeing comes from within, and we provide a space where you can receive a range of deeply relaxing and soothing treatments from fully trained therapists helping you to re-discover that natural inner stillness and re-charge your emotional, physical and mental batteries.

A chance to relax and unwind, chat with our friendly staff and find out more about Motherwell and how we can help/support you.
