Enjoying Derbyshire

‘Enjoying Derbyshire’ is our name for our community wellbeing programme that offers a varied menu of community based activities, groups, and courses in Derby and Derbyshire.

What is Enjoying Derbyshire?

All of our activities are based on the Five Ways To Wellbeing and are designed to boost mood and improve mental wellbeing, reduce loneliness and isolation, and create connections between people.

With many different ways to boost our mood and improve our mental and physical wellbeing we know that different things interest each of us. That’s why we aim to have a mix of different activities always on offer, so that everyone will find something that suits their needs. What’s more, all of our Enjoying Derbyshire activities are free to attend.

It is our vision that by providing group activities and courses that focus on improving wellbeing, boosting mood, and learning about mental health, less people will find themselves at a stage where they are struggling with their mental health.

Who are the Enjoying Derbyshire activities for?

All of our Enjoying Derbyshire activities and groups are specially designed for people who have a mild to moderate mental health condition such as depression or anxiety, or are experiencing low mood and isolation. All services are for adults living in Derby or Derbyshire who are over the age of 18. You are welcome to bring a friend or someone to support you.

What are the Five Ways to Wellbeing?

We’re encouraged to eat at least five fruit and veg a day to take care of our physical health, but what about our mental health?

Research carried out by the New Economics Foundation found that there are five ways, or activities that we can do, to look after our mental wellbeing. These Five Ways To Wellbeing are what we base our Enjoying Derbyshire programme activities on.

The Five Ways Are…

Enjoying Derbyshire Partnerships

We work together with our local community and in partnership with various agencies including voluntary and statutory organisations and local individuals and community groups. We believe that this is the best way to combine our areas of expertise and create services to be proud of.
