Residents of the West Marsh ward in Grimsby will be able to benefit from workshops aimed
at improving mental health and well-being thanks to a donation of £2350 from the Care Plus
Group Charitable Trust.
Running from the West Marsh Community Centre, the series of workshops will start in early
2023 and will be able to support up to 30 people. The 2 hour sessions will each build upon
one another and will cover things such as mental health, choices, understanding change and
managing and dealing with anxiety.
Alan Burley, West Marsh Development Trust said: “Through our community work in the West Marsh, we have identified through discussion with residents and users of the centre that many of them suffer from anxiety and mental health issues linked to both health/financial pressures and other factors in the current climate. We believe that these issues are only going to increase unless addressed hence our request for funding.
“This series of workshops will give individuals the time and space to think about their own
direction in life, supporting them in their time of need.”
Julie Grimmer, Trustee at the CPG Charitable Trust said: “The Trustees of Care Plus Group Charitable Trust were delighted to be able to support this project which fulfils the charity’s objectives of helping groups and individuals improve their health and well-being. We wish West Marsh Community Centre every success.”
Amanda Young, Trustee at the CPG Charitable Trust said: “I’m pleased we were able to make this donation as it is great to be able to help local people access the help they need within their local community.”
