Mind in West Cumbria

Mind in West Cumbria believe that a healthy body and good social links within the community do much to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

From our office base in Workington, we offer a variety of services to support the local residents in Allerdale and Copeland.

RED January 2019

Support your mental health this January by getting active every day, your way!

We’re excited to be partnering with RED January, a community initiative providing people with support and a focus during a characteristically tough month.#

Whether it’s a morning swim, running a 5k or just taking your bike for a spin, you can join the thousands of people around the UK, kick-starting their 2019 in the most positive way.

Every Mind works tirelessly to support those who need help and we would be grateful for your fundraising support. We have teamed up with RED and National Mind and are one of 25 Local Minds taking on RED. So you can support RED either in your area or nationally.

By choosing to support a Local Mind you are ensuring any money raised directly impacts your local community. You can register for any Local Mind within Lancashire or Cumbria. If you have already registered with National Mind but would like to switch and support us locally please contact us to arrange this.

You can register for free here.

We look forward to going on this journey with you!
