Living Life to the Full

Living life to the Full is a 10 week Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) based, NHS accredited peer-led course helping people to overcome or deal with depression, anxiety and low mood. It is meant as the first step in the 5 step mental health step care plan GP’s follow and they are able to refer to this course.

Here are some specific outcomes of Living life to the full based on the PH9 NHS depression support questionnaire from the last few courses.

o   4 people who never went out are now going outside again
o   10 are now employed, 2 self-employed and 6 now in volunteer positions
o   9 sought rehab and 3 are now totally clean
o   2 now living back with partners and no longer talking of divorce
o   5 are better nourished
o   2 soldiers sought help for ptsd and 4 sought professional therapy

Welcome!

In 2002 West End Impact started its journey of Helping People, Bringing Hope and Changing Lives!! We opened in response to the regeneration of Morecambe which was a government focus at that time; Regeneration starts with people and although the new prom in Morecambe is amazing there are still lots of people in great need and lots to be done.
We opened our doors to everyone and our services have been tailored to the needs of the Community. There are now 12 different projects or sessions running from our multi purpose building!!

At West End Impact we support people through crisis, help them repair reasons for their crisis and assist them in moving on. We work with people who are homeless, jobless and hopeless – people who have lost their home, their job and/or hope.
As a Christian Charity we believe God’s love for people is all inclusive, relevant for the whole human being.
For some the Good News of Jesus is a challenging word in season or a great sermon; for others it is a hot bowl of soup, housing advice and a dry sleeping bag.
We are thankful that God has us spread his love in both ways.
Often people take 3 steps forwards, 5 backwards and 8 sideways but we pray they find new hope in themselves, through us and in God.
