Whippet Up Choosedays Wellbeing in the Woods
Project Category: Community Interest Company
Whippet Up formed as a Community Interest Company in early 2018 based in Saltburn-by-the-Sea (close to Middlesbrough/Redcar) it runs wellbeing groups that bring together a diverse group identified through a referral network we have built (community based IAPT providers, dementia support, occupational therapy, vol sector groups etc). These mixed groups tare supported using an asset based creativity approach – what is different about the ‘ Whippet Up way’ is that all weekly wellbeing sessions involve the group/group members in planning larger scale community arts projects (community meals, festivals, open air cinema, arts events, performances etc). This created a pathway that has provided a measurable route for tackling wellbeing and social isolation. As well as our Saltburn group we are soon to run groups in Redcar and Boosbeck.
