Brainbox is a 94sq blank space with potential. The Wellbeing Centre is currently a dormant company. We will provide a welcoming environment, comfortable, secure and safe surroundings for therapy sessions for women, youths and families. We will also provide business space support and technology to SME business owners, entrepreneurs and fledgeling or existing struggling business owners. Running The Wellbeing Centre within Brainbox will meet a number of community needs - using flexible hours of delivery within a local area where mental health services are limited and therapy around the family is essential. Local business support services within the area are needed - quality business support to entrepreneurs will meet the needs of local budding business owners. They will be supported with small to medium enterprise training and space for ideas and training services.

What we'll deliver:

  • Build a flexible working environment to meet community needs
  • Build and equip therapy rooms which meet the needs of youth women and families
  • Provide a technology hub, training and working space for business owners and entrepreneurs

Why it's a great idea:

Meeting community needs is essential and mental health services to youth women and families is key. Business services which meet entrepreneurs and new and existing business owners will improve the local economy. We will also provide a technology hub, space for action groups and space for meetings and training.

Steps to get it done:

  • By end of October 2018 the internal spaces for Therapy rooms and training and fitness rooms will be planned
  • By December the marketing will be online and in leaflets and distributed to schools churches and local community groups
  • Go live or opening the Wellbeing Centre in Brainbox - opening plans will be for January 2019
  • One job will be saved and moved to the project immediately on funding
  • 2 apprentices and 2 volunteers will be appointed by November 2018 for go live January 2019
  • review dates on progress set monthly on 1st week each month

The challenge is to recommission this building 'Brainbox' whilst housing the Wellbeing Centre to suit community needs within the spheres of mental health, training and skills acquisition and building new business entrepreneurial support within the local area to boost the economy with a worthwhile opportunity to benefit the whole community. Families, women and children and youths will benefit as there will be childcare facilities on hand if required to support if users need childcare whilst having therapy sessions, training services, business appointments, or if they simply want to drop in to use the business hub and/or business consultancy or training services on hand. The idea is to meet people where they feel safe and are in a caring, warm, supportive and comfortable environment. Providing a flexible series of therapy rooms for families, women and youth, meeting/training space with a flexible technology-based hub for business owners and entrepreneurs within the Brainbox building.
