Health and wellbeing support at your neighbourhood hub
Drop-in sessions for people looking for advice about returning to work, finding a better job or increasing their skills are available at Newport’s neighbourhood hubs.
As part of a regional project called CELT (Connect, Engage, Listen, Transform) the free sessions will focus on health, wellbeing and employment support.
The teams at the hubs are particularly calling on parents and carers who have children starting school in September and are perhaps considering what to do next. There will be advice and support to improve their employment prospects, skills or qualifications.
The following sessions will be running at Central and East Neighbourhood Hubs:
- Coffee & Unwind: Where parents can come along for a coffee, and we will look at a different topic each week (e.g. housing/mental health/finances) ending with learning about mindfulness.
- Wellbeing Walks (linking with Community Development Teams): Open to the whole family with a potential park stop. Showing the benefits of being outside and active.
- Explore your Future: Looking at moving parents closer to employment/upskilling. This is going to be a rolling programme looking at Goals/Barriers, CV’s/Job Searching and encouraging participants to gain qualifications and engage with our employment contracts
- Support in group sessions or 1:1
