Coppice Library and Wellbeing Centre is a community wellbeing hub run by and for the benefit of local residents with support from blueSCI a not for profit social enterprise which supports people who may be experiencing emotional or psychological distress. The aim of the centre is to support local individuals and families to achieve their goals and improve their health and wellbeing through the 5 Ways to Wellbeing;
The centre provides creative opportunities for social interaction and a culture of learning, encouraging individuals to try something new or rediscover an old interest, or take on a new responsibility or challenge. Please see the Whats On for more information.
Connect: Developing relationships with your family, friends, people at work, your neighbours and people in communities will enrich your life and bring you support. Your local library is a great source of information about activities and groups in your area.
Be Active: Playing sports, hobbies such as gardening or dancing, or just a daily stroll will make you feel good and maintain mobility and fitness. It provides fresh air, the opportunity to get out and about, social contacts and releases ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain.
Take Notice, be curious: We all lead busy lives, but taking time to appreciate your surroundings, enjoy everyday moments as well as the unusual and reflecting on them helps you to appreciate what matters to you.
Learn: Fixing a bike, learning an instrument, cooking, gardening – the challenge and satisfaction brings fun and confidence.
Give: Helping friends and strangers links your happiness to a wider community and is very rewarding. It makes them feel good and you too. Volunteering is a one way to do this. It is a great way to meet new people and gain new experiences. 5 Ways to Wellbeing (Forsight Report 2010)
