Stafford Social Hub has been running community based mental health preventative service since 2009, this is being delivered by Starfish Health and Wellbeing’. The Social Hubs tackle social isolation and loneliness as well as alleviates 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 Stafford 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).

About Stafford Social Hub

Starfish is committed to take action to change unfair and discriminatory practices wherever they occur. The Stafford Social Hub is open and welcomes all individuals as we strive to create a network of groups and activities where everyone feels safe and comfortable.

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 Vulnerable Adult Referral 0345 604 2719. If it appears that a criminal offence has taken place, the police should be informed immediately on 999.
