Richmond Fellowship’s Redbridge Community Links service works with individuals affected by mental ill health already living in their own homes to receive assistance with day-to-day tasks and activities, such as budgeting finances or doing the weekly food shop.
What we do
Richmond Fellowship’s Redbridge Community Links Service offers one to one advice sessions using the recovery star to develop goals and action plans with regular reviews. We also put on workshops aimed at developing skills e.g. healthy eating, interests e.g. creative writing and pathways to opportunities for continued development in the community e.g. college, local interest groups.
Individuals are helped to identify strengths, aspirations, interests and goals and to take ownership of their development. This process is supported by advisors who have a good knowledge of local resources and community groups and can assist in researching appropriate opportunities.
Individuals are encouraged to set up their own activities as a way of promoting confidence building, self-direction and empowerment. The community development worker builds and maintains connections with the variety of different cultural community groups in the area.
Who we help
Our service is available to residents in the Borough of Redbridge who are aged over 18 and have a mental health problem.
Referrals are accepted from individuals who are eligible or from services involved with their care.
