Basildon Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The HAPPY Hub is in the heart of Basildon's, Eastgate Shopping Centre and is a vibrant one-stop-wellness shop which promotes and supports mental health through the use of the NHS 5 ways to wellbeing and positive psychological techniques. To support our long-term sustainability we sell a wide range of mental health resources, which we believe is the first shop to specialise, we are also in the process of setting up the wellness cafe, serving drinks and light snacks, with a pay-it-forward ethos to support those who might be unable to afford it. As a safe, calming place, the HAPPY Hub welcomes everyone and there is always someone on hand ready to listen, and signpost if needed. It is a place where valuable life expereince is shared, hope is given, confidence is built and the community of all ages comes together.

What we'll deliver:

  • Open a cafe within the Hub
  • Support volunteer trainning
  • Run therapuetic sessions

Why it's a great idea:

The HAPPY Hub is a great idea because we are open to everyone, regardless of age or postcode. There are no wait lists, just turn up and join in activities that have been designed to promote positive mental health. Also at the hub people can access our team of mental health trained staff, that also have a wealth of life experience who can share invaluable knowledge. The HAPPY Hub is supported by a fantastic volunteer team who have gone on their wellness journey, which started with hope as a Wellness Warrior, evolving to a Wellness Champion as they grow through training and the undertaking of responsibility. Because our wellness shop is in the heart of the community and run by the community, we offer a unique, practical solution to promoting and supporting health and wellbeing. Helping people realise their potential and flourish is our priority, as well as promoting and showcasing the positivity within our community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Create a fully functional wellness cafe within the HAPPY Hub
  • Employ a team member to support the volunteers.
