With the right kind of support communities can respond to their own challenges by identifying and mobilising existing but unrecognised assets.

This is the approach that Lancashire Mind's Community Wellbeing Challenge takes to enable people to improve their own mental wellbeing whilst establishing an initiative in their community to improve the wellbeing of others.

Our Wellbeing Challenge programme for schools has helped to make a difference to over 50 school communities across Lancashire. We have adapted the programme so it can support a broader range of communities to improve wellbeing. We've been successful in securing funding from BUPA UK Foundation to deliver the programme across Lancashire with adults.

A Community Wellbeing Challenge asset - Fleetwood Wellbeing Way

Community Wellbeing Challenge is for people who want to know more about keeping themselves mentally well and who want to promote mental wellbeing in their community as well as developing their own project management skills. You'll join a team of around 10 people. Over twelve weeks you will learn about mental wellbeing, survey your local community, and develop an asset or project for your community that will promote mental wellbeing.  You will then be supported to launch this asset and to make it sustainable. 

During the challenge you will: 

  • Develop Mental health awareness & explore wellbeing.
  • Asset map the community.
  • Create and analyse a survey.
  • Explore ideas and empower your current skills.
  • Present your idea to local people.
  • Project management and planning next steps.
  • Promoting your asset and making it a reality.
  • Reflect on your journey and asset.
  • Develop a sustainability plan.
