CURRENT PROJECTS

COMMUNITY CLINIC

Fortnightly homeopathy sessions at Glengall Wharf Garden Community Yurt funded by Homeopathy UK. These are ongoing. Please text for appointments to 07515445075.

COMMISSIONED WORK

Following on from our work with the Young People Leaving Care group in Southwark, we were asked to provide our services at a day organised by Westminster Children's Services.

Likewise after the work we did for Southwark Pensioner's Centre, funded by the Big Lottery, they requested us to provide therapies and group activities on two further occasions - on two Wellbeing days for the pensioners themselves and on an inset day for staff.

COMMUNITY THERAPY CLINICS AT GLENGALL WHARF GARDEN -

NATIONAL LOTTERY AWARDS FOR ALL - We are just at the end of our project THE HEALTHY TOUCH. We added 3 extra therapy sessions paid for out of unrestricted funds. We offered reflexology and various forms of massage in our Glengall Garden yurt. We also combined with the Copleston Centre to offer Christmas lunch and with Barserve to offer 2 free lunches on the South Bank as part of our bid commitment. All 3 lunches were extremely popular and we are intending to join with the Copleston Centre again this year to provide a Christmas lunch.

THE COPTOG NETWORK

Local people, including those who have experienced mental health difficulties, meet to socialise, support each other and co-organise affordable activities. CopTog members have been able to receive therapies via the various different funding streams that provided them in our yurt. They very much appreciated all the lunches we organised. In addition they have the option of benefiting from the twice weekly lunches offered at the Copleston Centre. Contact coplestontogether@live.co.uk to join.

OTHER MEMBER-LED ACTIVITIES

Individual members have historically been supported to apply for projects to carry out activities they were interested in. These opportunities were paused during recent years. They included funding for cycling sessions at Herne Hill Velodrome, seaside visits and Yoga for Youth. As lockdowns eased, we were able to go on a couple of seaside trips and will be looking to restart such opportunities again in the future. 

Previous Projects:

HOLISTIC THERAPIES AT MAUDSLEY HOSPITAL

We no longer do our holistic therapy sessions for staff and patients on Eileen Skellern 2 ward at the Maudsley Hospital. These were funded directly by the ward itself out of its own budget. Unfortunately the ward ceased to exist completely during the covid period, possibly due to the fact that it was a Lambeth ward in a Southwark hospital. 

************************************************************************

RECENT PROJECTS

Neighbourhoods funds - 3 funds - RECOVERY & RESILIENCE - a series of therapies in the Yurt. - Ditto with A TOUCH OF HEALTH. Plus we completed the 2 final holistic health days we were providing to care leavers in Southwark.

 

COMMUNITY THERAPY CLINICS AT GLENGALL WHARF GARDEN -

NATIONAL LOTTERY AWARDS FOR ALL - Our project THE HEALTHY TOUCH has comprised therapies and the lunches described above..

FUTURE PLANS

Of course we intend to acquire future funding to continue our one to one therapy work in Glengall Garden.

More immediately, though, we are planning a joint bid with SDCAS (Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers) and the Copleston Centre to re-introduce some of the therapeutic work we did previously with both organisations. This will be done in memory of Gillian Reeve who set up so many vital community projects and activities during her time as coordinator of community and development work at the Copleston Centre.

Our history

 

From 1994, much of our work was based at the Copleston Centre in Peckham. Originally a range of therapies were offered in the Copleston Centre. In time funding was procured for community-based outreach work, often visiting people in their homes. Social gatherings and group outings were also a very important part of the work. The therapists established important links with the Community Mental Health Teams, The Maudsley Hospital and community-based organisations such as Southside Partnership and Thamesreach.

 

Since then numerous people have benefited from the services and MHP has built on the work developed by the original team.

 

Groups and organisations we have delivered therapies for in the past and those we are currently working with include:

 

Age UK Lewisham and Southwark

Black Elderly Group Southwark

The Copleston Centre

Creation Trust

Creative Therapies Project

Kindred Minds

Notting Hill Housing

Peckham Befrienders

South London and Maudsley (SLaM)

Southwark Mind

Southwark Pensioners Centre

Together UK/Southwark Wellbeing Hub

 

Our funders have included: National Lottery Community Fund; City Bridge Trust; Peckham Voluntary Sector Forum; Maudsley Charity; Homeopathy UK; Society of Homeopaths; South London and Maudsley (SLaM) London Borough of Southwark; Southwark Primary Care Trust; Wates Foundation.

 

We are now based at the Sojourner Truth Community Centre in Peckham.
