The service's aim

The aim of the service is to promote mental wellness.   We focus on promoting service users' independence in order to aid recovery. Our goal is awareness and inclusion. We enable people to get the services they want in a relaxed setting and offer mainstream services such as education, employment, welfare rights and housing advice. Service users find themselves on an equal footing with members of the community, all using the same services in the same setting.

We consult with service users about activities and how the centre is run. We do this through questionnaires and by including service users and carers.
