Social Prescribing Wellbeing Café
MTC Learning is honored to be part of the Waltham Forest Social Prescribing Serviceand run Wellbeing cafe in Leyton and Leytonstone.
Social Prescribing Wellbeing Café offers weekly face to face sessions for residents of Waltham Forest aged 18 years or older who experience low mood, anxiety, loneliness, or social isolation and who would like to and are able to attend the sessions in person. Note that if you don’t live in Waltham Forest but your GP/healthcare are in Waltham Forest, you can still apply.
You are welcome to attend with a friend or a relative if you feel more comfortable with a bit of extra support. We will ask your support person to fill in a membership form too. The Wellbeing Café is run from three locations across Waltham Forest: we have welcoming, accessible and Covid-secure community venues in Chingford, Walthamstow, and Leytonstone. Wellbeing Cafés offer social time, light refreshments, activities, advice and learning sessions to choose from and are open to members only. Membership is free and limited to up to 3 months per member so we can offer this opportunity to more people, the members will be signposted and linked to other opportunities – activities, groups, volunteering, learning, and training to progress onto.
Please fill in the membership form with your health-care professional (e.g. social prescriber, nurse, mental health practitioner, care-coordinator) and ask them to e-mail it to Shahid Mahmood at firstname.lastname@example.org if you live in Leyton or Leytonstone (E10 and E11)
