The Hub is a community funded centre, opening in March 2022. We are creating a safe welcoming space for people looking for help with mental health and physical and life skills challenges. At the Hub you will be able to use our signposting service, join a local support group or meet up for a chat. It will be a place you can come if you need emotional support or simply want someone to listen.

No, the Wellbeing Hub is an independent charity which compliments Kelsall Health Centre and the NHS services provided locally. Kelsall Health Centre led the initiative to set up Kelsall Patient Participation Group (Kelsall PPG) and Kelsall PPG subsequently set up the charity to create a Wellbeing Hub. It is separate from the Health Centre but it will provide social prescribing services to the community. Social prescribing is when the GPs or Nurses identify non-clinical services that might help patients with mental or physical wellbeing.

The Wellbeing Hub has been paid for by the community and local businesses who have generously supported the charity through donations. We have also been able to apply for some charitable grants and funding from time to time. The Wellbeing Hub will continue to be run as a charity for the benefit of the whole community and will rely on fundraising, donations and a small café run onsite.

Social prescribing is when the GPs or Nurses identify non-clinical services that might help patients with mental or physical health and wellbeing. For example they might recommend that patients seek out activities which foster social contact and reduce loneliness. The Wellbeing Hub will try to provide the types of non-clinical services most needed in the community.
