Funding for the Grapevine Wellbeing Project

The Grapevine Wellbeing Project has received the second payment from The People's Health Trust after successfully completing the Six Months Monitoring form. We believe that we are on the way to achieving the project outcomes and we are within the project budget.

We thank all the people who have been involved in the project and a special thanks to the members of the steering committee who have made such a difference to the Wellbeing Project. We will be undertaking further surveys of our members to develop more self-help groups and  to recruit volunteer facilitators.

Christmas Tea and Talk 

The Christmas Tea and Talk - Self Help Groups Showcase was held on Thursday 8th December 2016 in the Methodist Church Hall. The event was held in conjunction with the Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health and was funded by the CCG through NDVA.  A creative writing exercise, devised by Julian Cohen, was enjoyed by everyone and a Christmas themed quiz was held. You can see all the attendees scratching their heads to find the answers. The winner scored 16 out of 25 so you can see have difficult it was. We thank Rona Rawson for the Quiz and to Julie Dadson for all her hard work organising the event
