Improving health and wellbeing

Posted on 24 January 2020

Cross Keys Homes (CKH) has secured funding to provide health and wellbeing activities for women in Peterborough.

The grant, from the GVC Fund, a charitable fund managed by Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, will enable CKH to offer activities in its community hubs and venues across Peterborough, including:

  • The Next Steps course, supporting women to build resilience, develop healthy relationships, manage anxiety and boost confidence
  • A weekly support group, led by a qualified psychotherapist, allowing women to share experiences in a safe group environment
  • A range of free beauty courses, leading to a certificated qualification, giving participants great employment skills
  • Women-only yoga and fitness sessions, providing a safe space for women to improve their mental and physical health.

“This funding is amazing news for us and a fabulous start to the New Year,” said CKH Chief Executive, Claire Higgins.

“We know many women are looking for safe and nurturing environments to help them improve their mental and physical health, and to enable them to forge friendships and learn new skills. This funding means we can support even more people and reach out to those who might not otherwise be able to access these types of activities.”
