ARTS FOR WELLBEING

When you are struggling with physical or mental wellbeing it affects your family, relationships, work and ability to achieve the goals you want to achieve in life.
Our arts for wellbeing activities aim to help you improve your wellbeing through developing confidence, self-esteem, expressing yourself and having lots of fun connecting with others.
The activities we provide are designed to be accessible and fun for everyone, you never have to have taken part before. Whether it's drama, singing, poetry or crafting, our arts for wellbeing groups have something fun to try for everyone and lots of activities you can bring or do with babies and toddlers too.
Come and check out our open access groups where lots of people just like you will be trying things out for the first time. They run Tuesday-Thursday from 10am-3pm. Find the timetable for this term above.
"Sometimes we all need a bit of extra help"
Maybe you need some help affording fresh food for you or your family, or some advice on debt, budgeting or housing, or maybe you just need someone to chat with about the stresses of life and your mental health who can listen to how you feel, support you and help you find services that can help.
Maybe you need somewhere warm to spend the day this winter to help keep those heating bills down.
Whatever help you need you can find it at Liverpool Lighthouse.
This autumn/winter our drop in which runs 10am-3pm Tuesday to Thursday will be a safe, warm space you can come and spend time, get free tea and coffee, access our fresh food pantry and some days get a free hot meal.
You will also find the help and support you need from our friendly staff and volunteers.
While you are here you may want to explore some of our arts for wellbeing activities too to help you work on your long-term mental health and wellbeing.
"I first came to Liverpool Lighthouse to the Family Connect programme where we would have social events, cooking classes and so much more, which helped me with the situation I was in and helped develop some key skills. I have been a part of Liverpool Lighthouse ever since and I am now employed by them, so it really has come full circle and Liverpool Lighthouse has had a massive impact on my life."

REFUGEES AND ASYLUM -SEEKERS
Moving to a new place where you don't speak the language can be a daunting prospect. Liverpool Lighthouse not only provide accredited courses in ESOL, but also the chance to become part of a community, helping refugees, vulnerable migrants and asylum seekers feel more connected. We also run a specific programme to support the wellbeing of perinatal women with experience of the asylum system.
Our ESOL courses support speakers of other languages who wish to improve their communication for everyday life and to gain the language qualifications they need to progress to further education, employment or for the citizenship test.
