In addition to our virtual Springboard sessions, which happen every Wednesday 2-3.45pm, we wanted to keep in touch and stay connected with Springboard users and provide useful information and tips for maintaining good physical and mental wellbeing being during this period of lockdown.

The Springboard Gazette is our regular newsletter featuring  information and advice from staff and service users. We welcome your feedback and we share your comments and ideas in the Gazette, so we can stay connected.

In addition, we recently launched our Springboard Scribbler Project, a pen pal scheme aimed at keeping people connected and helping people express how they are feeling or to ask any questions about their wellbeing and best to cope.

We know that a lot of people attend our groups because they are lonely and lack confidence and we know that some will be finding the physical and emotional isolation very difficult to manage.  We want to encourage anyone that's feeling lonely and cut off to get in touch. Our Scribbler can help answer your questions, can advise on services and just be there to let you know that you are not alone and we do want to hear from you.

Send your letters to [email protected] Subect Line Springboard Scribbler

When will normal service be resumed?

We will be reinstating face-to-face group meetings as soon as it's safe to do so and look forward to seeing you all at the Wellbeing Centre - Wednesday from 1.00 - 4.00 p.m.

Certainly staff and volunteers will be pleased to welcome you back

In the meantime we are still providing support via weekly Zoom Springboards. If you need advice you can call the office on 0114 258 4489 or email [email protected] and someone will assist you.
