Clarendon Street is a Community Wellbeing Service based at 20 Clarendon Street, Derry/Londonderry. Our aim is to provide a range of opportunities and support to people with mental health needs. Support comes not only from trained staff but also from meeting and talking to others who have had or are experiencing mental health difficulties, in a relaxed, unhurried atmosphere. Members can drop in or take part in any of the activities/groups available.
Staff and members work in partnership to ensure the service reflects the needs of members and encourages active involvement in all areas. Fortnightly partnership meetings are held to discuss and plan work of the centre. Individual support planning with a key worker means that a tailored programme of activity can be accessed by all members. This may include: educational classes; self-help/support groups; creative activities; complementary/alternative therapies; social opportunities.
We provide a range of activities throughout the year and opportunities for outreach trips, mainly during the summer.
Examples of our regular activities include:
• Arts and Pottery
• Connect 5 and WRAP
• Music Tuition
• Men’s Outreach
• Other Various Recreational Opportunities
We are running an Allotment project with tutor through Live & Learn funding. The Group are now planting out seedlings and are hoping to keep a blog of how things are going. We offer a Text alert service to members to let them know of meetings and any events coming up in the centre.
Members can complete a Certificate in community volunteering – Members who volunteer are offered opportunity to complete accredited training relevant to their area of volunteering.
