A Rosehill KIND project - A space for community connectivity, creativity, and well-being
After the critical introduction of the weekly Warm Hub, which began in October 2022 and ran until the end of July 2023, we will continue to deliver a weekly space every Monday 10 am – 2 pm at the United Reformed Church in Whitehaven.
Rosehill will deliver the Welcome Hub in partnership with Cumberland Council and Copeland Wellness Service. The project will now become part of Rosehill’s brand-new KIND initiative, which will use creativity to unite communities, support well-being, and help reduce isolation across Whitehaven and surrounding areas.
Each week at the Welcome Hub, we will continue to offer face-to-face support, advice, and guidance from groups and services, as well as opportunities to volunteer and be involved in community projects beyond the Hub. Cumberland Council social prescribing team will be there each week to signpost the community to help from groups and services in the borough – alongside services including Copeland Wellness Service and others.
The Welcome Hub will function as a space for:
Social prescribing support
Information on local support services
Health and well-being advice
Creative kindness activities
The space will be welcoming and open until 2 p.m. All ages are welcome to attend, although adults must accompany those under 16. Food and hot drinks will be accessible throughout the day, with donations welcome to help us keep providing what we do.
The Welcome Hub will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Monday, from September 11th until December 11th, 2023, and then back again in the new year.
No booking is required. So please drop in at any time.
“We want to create a welcoming and relaxed environment at the Welcome Hub, where everyone can access support from services to enhance well-being and get actively involved in creative activities. We hope that on the back of these sessions, participants will be confident to engage in more socially prescribed and cultural activities in the area and be signposted to the appropriate support they need.”
Daniel Whitehouse, Creative Director at Rosehill
