Happy and healthy groups at the Hamara Centre

Hamara and Leeds Community Foundation have come together to launch a series of new groups for individuals who have recently undergone treatment for poor mental health.

The groups offer opportunities for adults aged 17+ to experience a myriad of activities that encourage interaction and combat social isolation; to learn new skills and experience a sense of achievement; to aid recovery by enabling individuals to develop tools to help in the management of their conditions. All of this and much more is offered in a friendly, safe and supportive environment.

Activities include:

  • Gardening and Woodwork
  • Artful Minds
  • Reviving Body and Mind
  • Dancing Days September
  • Singing for Health and Happiness
  • Healthy and Creative Cooking
  • Coffee, Cake and Conversation
  • Furniture Upcycling
  • Creative Writing
  • Speaking with Confidence

Individuals are able to self-refer onto a group. They may also be referred to the groups by a health care professional, friend or family member.

Please call Hamara on (0113) 277 3330 and a referral form can be sent out to you. If you require any assistance with the referral process please contact us by emailing sarah.dransfield@hamara.co.uk or call Sarah on 07470 977878.

The Hamara Healthy Living Centre is located on Tempest Road in Beeston Hill, LS11 6RD
