Services & Projects

Ulverston MIND's aim is to make sure the services we provide are relevant to and inclusive of the people and communities we serve. Achieving this means we are open to improving provision and accessibility wherever we can - where additional resources are needed we seek to recruit and train volunteers and fundraise to enable this.

Some of our services are scheduled on certain days and at certain times whilst others are available all the time. Services that require more privacy are held in our offices or other locations such as a private room at a health center whilst the more social sessions are held at various community venues in Barrow* (Connecting Mums* only), Dalton, Coniston and Ulverston with new groups opening where need and resources allow.

Our informal drop-ins and group work are peer supportive in nature with recovery to better or improved mental health at their core. They are led by a skilled and dedicated team of volunteers, all of whom are DBS checked and have completed Ulverston Mind's initial volunteer learning module and benefit from ongoing learning and development. An essential feature of our work and ethos is that everyone is treated with respect and equality is observed and promoted throughout our organisation. People who support or attend our services and peer group sessions are all responsible for making them safe spaces for each other. Peer group support, i.e learning from each other in an encouraging and positive environment, can be powerful and enabling in recovery to better mental health and wellbeing.
