Young People’s Counselling Service Parent and Caregivers Group starts up in Wisbech

The Young People’s Counselling Service is offering a supportive group for parents and caregivers who have concerns about their child’s mood, behaviour or mental health. This may include young people who refuse or are reluctant to go to school, who seem worried, and young people with low mood or seem to feel down about themselves. The group is open to parents and caregivers of both primary and secondary school age young people.

The group is run by an experienced therapist to offer parents and caregivers a safe space to share, talk about their experiences and to connect with other families. The therapist is on-hand to offer any advice and answer any questions. We would also like to share mindfulness techniques that can be used at home to help young people – and encourage our group members to have a go during our group time to practice these techniques for themselves and have some time for relaxation.

The group will take place weekly in the cosy setting of the Annabelle Davis Centre (Wisbech) and we will have refreshments available.

To learn more or to book your place for the group, please email kirsty.skutela@ypcs.uk.

Day: Tuesday

Time: 1:30pm – 3pm

Location: Annabelle Davis Centre

Wellbeing Hub comes to WISBECH

Recovery Collage East (RCE) Wellbeing Hub is excited to be expanding to Wisbech! We will be launching a new support program which has been designed to help people gain the skills and confidence they need to be able to take control of their own wellbeing and build personal action plans to help them gain momentum towards taking the next step in their lives. This could be towards work, education and training, volunteering, or even something else.


We are due to launch our first group in January and are now taking registrations. We are running some online ‘Find Out More’ sessions where you can meet some of our team and find out more about what’s involved in the program, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the wellbeing hub or the courses.


Interested…? Curious…? Then, if you are in the Wisbech area or work with anyone in the town, come along to meet us and find out more!


Sessions times are: Mon 6th Dec @ 7-8pm, Tues 7th Dec @ 3-4pm and Fri 10th Dec @ 11-12am. Please contact our co-ordinator to sign up, or, to register for the program: robert.hornett@cpft.nhs.uk


I Heart Wisbech Engagement events

If you have not been following I Heart Wisbech the back-story can be found by clicking here:

Over a thousand residents completed the survey on what they felt was good about Wisbech, what was not so good, and what could be changed.

Come and hear the results, and see what further opportunities are available by joining us at 3 events, all in June 2019.

Saturday the 22nd June 2019 between 1.30pm and 3.30pm at the Oasis Centre in St Michaels Avenue Wisbech PE13 3NP

Thursday the 27th June 2019 between 5.00pm and 7.00pm at the Rosmini Centre in 69a Queens Road Wisbech PE13 2PH

Food and refreshments are available.

Hear the results of the survey, hear what people felt were their priorities moving forward, and talk to representatives of the I Heart Wisbech Team about the possible next steps.

The I Heart Wisbech Team is made up of representatives from local councils and voluntary organisations that provide services in Wisbech.

Have your say………………

Do you work in Wisbech?

If so, what do you love about the town and what would you do to improve it?

Those are the questions being asked in a new I Heart Wisbech campaign to gather people’s views and use them to help develop future services and projects in the town.

The campaign has been launched by the I Heart Wisbech* team, which is made up of a number of local community organisations along with Cambridgeshire County Council, Fenland District Council and Wisbech Town Council.

There are 3 simple questions to complete which should only take 5 minutes of your time.

The survey is available at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/JLTXO/ and is expected to run until 1st March 2019.

Russell Rolph of Support Cambridgeshire (who is managing the project on behalf of the I Heart Wisbech team) said:

Those who live, work and invest in an area are the best people to ask on what’s right about where they live, and what could be improved.

The feedback will be used to develop key themes in community development and to hopefully uncover the next generation of social action champions in the town. So if you have a great idea on how to improve Wisbech we would love to hear from you.

The campaign links to the ongoing Wisbech 2020 Vision and its work to tackle local issues and deliver future health, economy and infrastructure improvements.
