What is wellbeing??
Wellbeing has been defined as: “A dynamic state, in which the individual is able to develop their potential, work productively and creatively, build strong and positive relationships with others, and contribute to their community. It is enhanced when an individual is able to fulfil their personal and social goals and achieve a sense of purpose in society.”

Talk to Us
Talk To Us is the Samaritans’ annual awareness-raising campaign. 2017’s Talk To Us campaign launches July 2017, and Samaritans are challenging the UK to become better listeners by sharing expert tips on how to be a better listener.
Throughout July, Samaritans branches are also holding events throughout the UK and Ireland to raise awareness of the services they offer in their local communities. Visit your local branch website to see what they’re doing during Talk To Us.

Washington Community Clothing Meet
Washington Community Clothing Meet is a new clothes bank working out of the Washington area. The clothes bank is open to all and offers clothes for people of all ages, from newborn to adulthood. The clothes bank also offers a fortnightly meet-up in Washington Village where people can come along and have a cuppa, look at the clothes available, take what you need and have a chat if you want.
Washington Community Clothing Meet is currently looking for donations of old school clothes, which children may have grown out of or don't need anymore, so that they can give the clothes to other who need them. If you want more information on the clothes bank including how to donate, how to access the service or where the clothes bank offers their fortnightly meeting, click here to visit their Facebook page.
