Richmond Fellowship’s Fenland Wellbeing service will be closing at the end of August 2019.
The replacement ‘Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Good Life Service’ will be operational from 2 September 2019 and be delivered by a new provider, CPSL Mind.
Due to this, we are no longer in a position to accept any new referrals.
Should you wish to speak with a Recovery Worker to discuss your needs in greater detail or to find out how we can support you at this time, please do get in touch by calling us on either 01354 654 715 or 01945 469 770.
For urgent mental health support, please contact the First Response service by dialling 111 (option 2) where staff will be on hand to offer support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How we help
Our team of Recovery Workers provide community-based support on a group or individual basis to help people manage their mental health, access social networks and peer support, and engage in everyday mainstream opportunities. A lot of our work now features peer support as a core element.
We work with people to help them maintain and improve their wellbeing and recovery through groups, wellbeing courses and activities that are focused on enabling personal development, creativity, building confidence and self esteem while increasing an individual’s ability to manage their own recovery. We work with individuals on a one to one basis to support them to reach their recovery goals using individual support plans tailored to their needs.
All our services are tailored to meet local needs and are designed to encourage each individual’s sense of security, purpose and fulfillment
Our aim is to promote social inclusion by enabling people to:
- Access social networks and peer support
- Participate in community based activities
- Improve mental well-being and quality of life
- Utilize your strengths and potential to enable you to take control of your life
- Take control of your own recovery
- Build skills and confidence through development activities
- Meet challenges, overcome obstacles and exploit all available opportunities
- Live full and meaningful lives as part of the community
We do this by working with individuals, encouraging them to explore their hopes and aspirations and helping them to take risks and make changes in their lives.
Trained peer mentors are available to enable people to access opportunities. Peer support also enables people to grow their social networks and enhances their self esteem
Who we can help
The Wellbeing Service works with people aged 18–64 who live in Fenland – North Cambridgeshire. The service supports people who are experiencing mental distress to the extent that it is impacting on their lives and sense of wellbeing.
We are able to offer support in our Wisbech and March offices as well as outreach services in more remote locations to try to make accessing our service easier. Unfortunately we are not able to provide home visits at this time.
A referral can be requested by telephone 01354 654715 or 01945 469770 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org or from one of our offices based at
15/16 Church Mews, Wisbech or Unit 18 Old School Buildings, Dartford Road. March.
At the heart of everything we do lies:
- Hope: the belief that recovery is possible for every individual
- Respect: valuing differences and all contributions
- Enabling: giving people encouragement and support to achieve their goals
- Inclusion: the belief that everyone has a right to participate fully in society.
