Located in central Southend, our focus is on putting people first. We provide a wide range of dynamic activities promoting healthy living and wellbeing, making informed choices and community inclusion. We have initiated or participated in a number of exciting projects and partnerships aimed at developing our service users’ independence, confidence and positive engagement within our town, including:


·       Our annual Big Health Day event, showcasing health and wellbeing with stalls, yoga, dance, music, cycling activities, etc that in 2017 received over 400 visitors.

·        ‘Jump Up and Join In’ monthly community open mic music sessions in partnership with The Railway Hotel.

·       Community gardening projects including our partnerships with Mendip Crescent Wildlife Garden, our award winning City Allotment project at The Railway Hotel and working with 'Make Southend Sparkle' to improve our town.

·       Art project work, including Art Doesn't Discriminate, and partnerships with Netpark in Chalkwell Park, Esturay Fringe, Street Art on Sea. Our highly acclaimed 'Recognise Us' street art instilation challenged stereotyping around people with Learning Disabilities.
