Mind matters: Ten Tips for care experienced young people's wellbeing around Christmas time

16 Dec 2020

Tips created by care experienced young people for anyone feeling down this Christmas.

Leicestershire Cares has been running a number of mental wellbeing workshops called Mind Matters, funded by Leicester City Council.

The aim is to support care experienced young people with their mental wellbeing and Leicestershire Cares has set up a consultation team, made up of care experienced young people, who are identifying workshops that can strengthen their resilience and wellbeing.

So far, arts and crafts have been used as a platform to bring people together online at the same time to talk, share ideas and create a community and support network. These workshops have been facilitated by The Curator- Educator.

The Mind Matters consultation group have identified other projects for 2021, including nature walks, gardening, puzzles and baking. Watch this sapce.
