Cannock Social Hub is the new community based mental health preventative service for Cannock Chase and surrounds, being delivered by Starfish Health and Wellbeing’.
Initially, Cannock Social Hub will be supported by a team of volunteers, to help support and host a series of workshops via Zoom. 
The Social Hubs tackle social isolation and loneliness as well as alleviating mental distress using an alternative refreshing mental healthcare model, one which refocuses on social health- where engaging in meaningful activity and gaining positive social support are key.
The Cannock Social Hub has a lot of activities and resources on offer, including group sessions, peer mentor training, volunteer training and community based courses to help people recover from mental health issues. People will be helped to form and design the support groups that they want to use, some will have a social or activity focus whilst others will help people to cope with mental health issues.
After a while, if people wish and are able to, they may become a peer that supports other people within a group, progressing to a trained and accredited volunteer with the Open College Network (OCN Level 2).

Please monitor our Facebook page for info on workshops and groups. 

We are currently recruiting Digital Volunteers to support and facilitate community workshops.

Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults

A vulnerable adult is a person aged 18 years or over who may be unable to take care of themselves, protect themselves from abuse or from being exploited. They could be vulnerable because they are old and frail, or have a sensory impairment, a disability, a mental health problem, or have some form of illness. Abuse can happen in many ways. It can be physical, verbal, sexual, financial, neglect, discrimination or institutional.  In an emergency or where there is severe risk you should inform the First Response Team (FRT) -  0800 131 3126. If it appears that a criminal offence has taken place, the police should be informed immediately on 999.
