Who we are
Richmond Fellowship’s Wakefield Community Based Support 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
We are a crisis drop-in service delivered throughout Wakefield and Five Towns providing information, advice and guidance to people suffering from mental ill health.
A 12 week support programme is run which provides one-one-to support to people that need support with mental ill health, including poor self esteem, social isolation, budgeting and finance, accessing support services.
We provide a Peer Support Hub. This runs a programme of groups and courses for and by people that have a mental health problem with the aim of reducing social isolation and facilitating peer support. Groups include crafts, Internet café, scrapbooking, wellbeing and many others.
We also offer volunteering opportunities within our peer support service. This includes facilitating and co-facilitating groups and courses, administration, graphic design and providing advice and guidance to people with mental ill health.
