New Steps Together peer support groups at Mayfield Nurseries

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

Mayfield Nurseries has been awarded a grant from HealthShape (a partnership between the Health Lottery and the People’s Health Trust), to run Steps Together peer support groups, helping people to improve their wellbeing, connect, share and have fun.

Mayfield provides a special place for people in Southampton with mental health issues to develop new skills and be part of a supportive, friendly community. It is a subsidiary charity of Solent Mind, the local mental health charity.

Rachel Hampton, Mayfield Nurseries Manager, says “It’s fantastic that we can offer peer support opportunities to our local community here at Mayfield Nurseries. Our friendly groups can make a real difference to people who need a little support connecting with others in the community and improving their wellbeing.”

The Steps Together groups are friendly, informal and low cost, and you don’t need any skills or experience to join in:

Wednesdays Weekly Social Group, 11.30am to 1.30 pm.

Thursdays Weekly Gardening Group, 1pm-3pm.

Fridays Weekly Walking Group, 11.30-1.30pm

Monthly meet-up to share successes and to shape the service on the first Tuesday of the month 11.30am-1.30pm.

All groups meet at Mayfield Nurseries, Mayfield Park, Weston Lane, Southampton, SO19 9HL.
