Update - Community activities are back !


footieWe are very pleased to announce that our Sports Social team have restarted some of our community activities and groups.

When government restrictions were relaxed we started to test activities that would work for small numbers and at a social distance and have now rolled these out across the county. It means that we have had to leave some popular activities on hold until restrictions are relaxed further but we will be ready to update the activities again as soon as guidelines allow us.

Our new amended program will give everyone the chance to get out and do something active like football, gardening, the gym or golf or stay home and connect virtually with our onlne gaming groups and book club - it's your choice.

As always, every group is coordinated by a Forum Sports and Social Peer who can help with signposting and support if required but also crucially who can help people to focus on and enjoy the activity itself.

We would love as many of you to be able to take part as possible and will do our best to ensure everyone gets a fair crack at the groups so for more details or to get involved please email sportsandsocial@dorsetmentalhealthforum.org.uk or leave a voicemail on our office number 01305 257172 and we will get back in touch.

We also run online activities such as chat rooms, art groups and board games via our Facebook group as well as the a weekly online book club and weekly online Xbox gaming session

If you are struggling with your wellbeing and feel like you may be going into crisis, please make use of Dorset Healthcare’s Connection service – a 24/7 telephone helpline 0300 1235440, which can provide direct help or signpost you to a range of other services.

Thank you.
