The Wellbeing Centre 


We relocated to The Wellbeing Centre on Sharrow Lane in 2017. The facility, a former Surestart, had been empty for some time and a great deal of effort was put into developing a warm and welcoming space for service users as well as appropriate accommodation for staff and visitors.

Update

The Wellbeing Centre is a multi functional space that can be used for a variety of purposes. We have a counselling suite that is ideal for meetings and one to one consultation and we also have larger rooms that can be adapted to accommodate a multitude of different activities.

To generate additional income to help maintain our free service delivery, we offer space for rent - long term tenant or one off event use. The building is accessible throughout and has a disabled parking space at the rear making it ideal for people with impaired mobility. We have areas that can be provided on a self catering basis but can also provide buffet refreshments for meetings or training sessions.

Our suite of counselling rooms can be hired by therapists wishing to offer discreet one to one or couples counselling, or holistic treatments that would benefit from the centre's unique ambience. Our larger, art therapy space is a bright and cheery room which lends itself to group work, team building exercises, or social activities.

In addition, we have a training suite with its own catering facilities which can be used for group meetings, away days, training sessions or informal social activities. We also operate the space as an occasional cafe for service users and hold staff and client socials, making the most of the garden space attached.

How you use the rooms is up to you but if you are in need of rooms for whatever purpose, using our facilities is a great way of showing your support for the work we do. The income generated from rental will contribute directly to the services we provide and help us maintain the facilities. 

If you are interested in using our facilities or have any questions about the facilities we have available, contact Gemma, our Office Administrator, for further info 0114 258 4489 or email [email protected] to arrange a date and time.

The Future for the Wellbeing Centre - we've only just begun...

We have come a long way since we first got the keys to the building but we're keen to do even more and to develop the rear of the property. We're hoping to design and build an area that can be used for social and therapeutic purpose, possibly incorporating eco-therapy and gardening so we can encourage some bio diversity.

We've been lucky enough to get support from local businesses and volunteers from Sky, Santander, Nationwide and Engie have helped us make the area safe and enabled us to install shrubs, planters and benches which has allowed us to host outdoor events and provided a space for staff to relax, in between sessions. The help we have received has been truly inspiring BUT there is a lot more to do and its one of the priorities for the coming year to make the space more user friendly.
