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. Since 2013 we have been creating UPLIFTs. These one-off creative events are for people who want to try new ways to break out of the blues and find fresh inspiration to feel good and stay well.
When fully funded these UPLIFT events are offered together as a free programme bursting with special days out. Each unique UPLIFT aims to help you connect with others, create memories and discover treasures right on your doorstep.
From workshops to festivals, camps to takeovers, UPLIFTs happen in venues and locations all across Barnsley; be it street, woodland, museum or park.
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.
