Cornelly Outreach Group Premises

The Cornelly Outreach Group applied to Reach’s Community Feasibility Fund for a feasibility study to create a clear direction in the form of a 5-year strategy for the group, based on information from the committee, members and service users. Their top priority is securing a suitable premises from which to run their confidential Services.

Cornelly Outreach Group was set up in September 2022 to help people over the age of 18 who suffer any form of mental health challenge, including addictions, bereavement and any mental illness that has an impact on their+ day-to-day life. They have skilled volunteers who help people while they are waiting for the appropriate support from the relative agencies and on hospital lists.

Cornelly Outreach Group is a drop-in centre based in the Public Hall in North Cornelly (next door to Cornelly Community Centre). It opens on a Saturday morning 11.30 am -1.30pm, providing a safe haven for anyone struggling. The volunteers are there for a private conversation, or visitors can share their experiences with others.

The Group offer free training (e.g. safeguarding, food hygiene), a meditation and mindfulness class, as well as foodbank vouchers – Welsh speakers are most welcome!   The Group organise a meal in the local area once a month, to enable their Service users to socialise and meet new people.

Cornelly Outreach Group were successful in their application and are currently working with the Reach team to commission a consultant to undertake this important study.  The study will include feedback from the current Service users, through a series of one-to-one interviews.
