‘£5 will pay for a local child and their parent to attend one of our Nature for Wellbeing Sessions during this difficult time. We also desperately need two gazebos for use in the sessions. Any amount that you can spare will be hugely appreciated.’
Who we are:
We are Strengthening Wellbeing Together CIC - a Community Interest Company created to support the wellbeing and mental health of all children and families in Merseyside, via a range of services and activities.
We believe that ALL local children and families should be supported to thrive. We believe that our great region could lead the way in promoting wellbeing.
What’s the Nature for Wellbeing Project & why are we crowdfunding?:
We created the Nature for Wellbeing project as a way to support the mental health & wellbeing of children & families through the recent covid crisis and beyond.
Many parents have approached us to say that their children are feeling anxious and would benefit from extra support. We want to help local kids overcome their worries and connect to their innate resilience by providing engaging, supportive, mindful workshops outside in nature. This is an awesome way to support their wellbeing, using tried and tested strengths-based methods, in the transition from lockdown.
Sessions take place in community gardens and parks and include activities that support mental health & wellbeing, including; kids mindfulness activities, nature themed crafts, positive art rock painting, gardening, kids yoga stretches, storytelling, simple meditation. We share wellbeing techniques and skills that participants can take forward to support their mental health in the future.
Your kind contribution to this crowdfunder will go towards the cost of two pop-up gazebos. This will ensure that our children can take shelter when rain becomes too heavy for waterproof coats & wellies to handle!
“The children had a lovely time enjoying nature. The session was well organised and we all have a lovely time. We look forward to attending future events.”
”Brilliant! We had a great time.”
