Redcar & Cleveland Mind is a well respected and successful charity established in 1991 and has a solid track record in the delivery of mental health services and training across our Borough. We have continued to develop new services and have established a social enterprise which offers a community café and creative therapies alongside our other services.
We offer a range of services including:
- Person-centred assessment and support planning to assist recovery from mental illness. Personalised support may include, support with social interaction and engagement, confidence building, preparation for work or training, and practical support.
- Our community café and charity shop is run as a social enterprise and is open for 6 days per week. It is well used by members of the public and community groups alike. We have a number of initiatives such as our “Crafty Café” and run community mental health campaigns from there.
- We provide 7 tenancies for clients with a mental health need or other vulnerability, enabling them to maintain their tenancies where general private or social housing may not be suitable. We work in partnership with the Redcar based Ethical Lettings Agency and social housing provider Coast & Country.
- Well4Work is Redcar & Cleveland Mind’s own workplace mental health training support programme, available to organisations across the region. We offer bespoke mental health awareness training to staff across a wide variety of sectors. Well4Work is bespoke. We offer tailor made packages that are flexible to fit around current workloads, making the training accessible to all employees. We can deliver a range of bespoke sessions from two hour general awareness or taster sessions, through to half day and full day courses, where your organisation has an input into the content delivered. It is delivered on site at your own premises, therefore cutting out the need for additional travel and/or overnight accommodation for delegates. Well4Work training can also include, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA), A Life Worth Living, Suicide Prevention training and Mindfulness. Our current customers include housing associations, chemical companies, Local Authorities, the emergency services, a care company, and a local school/academy. Our client base is growing all the time.
