Wellbeing Workshops

Life can bring us lots of concerns and worries, especially at the moment. If anxiety, low mood or stress is getting on top of you then we are currently running free 1hr introductory Wellbeing workshops on a Monday morning.

  • Understanding anxiety
  • Living with low moods and depression
  • Managing stress

To join one of these workshops please get in touch with us through our Wellbeing workshops enquiry form.

Green Homes Grant

Homeowners and landlords in England can apply for a voucher of up to £10,000 towards the cost of installing energy efficiency improvements to homes. Find out more

But be wary of any unexpected calls, texts or social media adverts about the scheme’s vouchers – they may be scams.

We’ve heard about homeowners getting scam calls, texts and emails telling them they were eligible for the grants before their details were known. Others were asked to supply their personal information. If you know of a scam, report it.
