We can all feel stressed, tired or in a rut at times. When things get too much we can help you to make a change.
UPLIFT is for people who want to try new ways to break out of the blues and find fresh inspiration to feel good and stay well.
We have created a unique, free programme of special days out and projects to help you connect with other people, create memories and discover treasures right on the doorstep.
From workshops to festivals, camps to takeovers, UPLIFTs happen in venues and locations all across Barnsley; be it street, woodland, museum or home.
An incredible 95% of people who have taken part in an UPLIFT experienced a positive change to their mental wellbeing. Participants said that they felt more motivated, curious, relaxed and connected to others and their community.
Some people have found UPLIFT to be a springboard to new opportunities and broader horizons. With a renewed confidence and awareness of what is possible, they have gone on to new beginnings such as volunteering, employment and linking with other community groups and venues.
We’ve also recently curated a programme of special Green UPLIFT sessions, which are held in green spaces. These include warming campfires, song walks, sketching picnics, forest crafts, allotment socials and loads more.
Take a look at the kind of things we’ve done before by checking out our UPLIFT blog.
