Warrington Parent Carers 

WarrPAC are a warm and welcoming group of volunteers, each with a lived experience of caring for a child or young person with disabilities and additional needs. We can help by signposting families to the right services and sharing a wealth of information, whether your child has a diagnosis, or you’re just starting to look for information.

We run sessions and events where parents can chat and share knowledge and experiences with other families in similar situations. WarrPAC listen to families to find out what’s important to them and take their views to those who plan and provide services in Warrington, working in partnership to help improve the quality of life for our children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

Peer Talk

PeerTalk’s vision is to establish a UK wide network of volunteer facilitated peer support group meetings for people who experience depression and to offer support to their families.

In addition to establishing peer support group meetings, PeerTalk aims to inform and equip individuals and communities to make a positive response to mental health issues. 

It is often the case that people who experience mental health issues also face difficulties in wider society through discrimination, intolerance and injustice. PeerTalk will seek to inform and equip communities to be confident in supporting people through such issues and enabling the communities to challenge the stigma associated with depression and poor mental health. We do this through promoting a positive narrative around mental health through social media and roadshows.

Fax: 01925 401 729

Get Warrington Talking is a new local initiative, supported by Warrington Speak Up, aiming to end the stigma and discrimination around mental health in Warrington.

Through a range of community activities, events, and social media messaging, local champions will support people to engage in a conversation and raise the profile of mental health by sharing their lived experience and tackling negative attitudes.

Our collective aim, in partnership with other organisations, is to create in Warrington a culture of awareness, understanding and support around mental health.

We would love you to join with us in this campaign to Get Warrington Talking.

For more information and to find out how you can get involved please contact Pip on 01925 246938 or email on GWT@warringtonspeakup.org.uk

Warrington Speak Up

 

Through a range of self-advocacy and creative project work, we work with people with a learning disability and/or autism, building their confidence, knowledge and skills to speak up about the things that are important to them.

Whether advocating on behalf of yourself or a group of people, we believe self- advocacy can improve quality of life, influence decision making, impact legislation and possibly change the world!

Directions for Men

 

We are a support group for men who are struggling emotionally. They may have anxiety or depression or just don’t feel that they are coping particularly well in their daily lives.

We will meet at least weekly and up to three times per week if demand requires it. We can also provide support over the telephone, by text message or chat through Facebook as well as meeting on a one-to-one basis. Each of our sessions follow a similar model. We will begin with a round of introductions and we will ask men to share what is troubling them and the impact it is having. We will talk through options and try to come up with an action plan to solve that problem or reduce the negative emotions it is causing. Men will then break in to smaller groups to explore their problem in more depth. Finally we will conclude by putting in place a plan to keep themselves safe until the next meeting.

We ultimately want the men to develop a supportive network with other men undertaking activities to maintain their wellbeing following the five ways to wellbeing methodology.
