Dave Pickard from Kaleidoscope came to see us at the Walsall Disability Hub. He was looking for somewhere to run a weekly health and wellbeing drop-in session and he felt that the Open Space at our Hub would be the perfect, calm environment for people with mental health difficulties to access.
We were happy to help and Dave spent the next six to eight weeks gradually building up his project. The sessions took a while to get going but within a few weeks they really took off, with attendance numbers often into double figures.
The success of Dave’s Drop-In has now enabled him to hire out our Open Space on a weekly basis. Alongside this, he has also set up a 10 Week Wellbeing Course to empower people to make positive changes in their life.
