Events


Creating a community of Wednesday’s Child advocates and followers, means we’re able to increase peer support, and engage more people in dialogue around this awful mental health illness.
 Our events are a perfect way to take a step into our community, whether you’re caring for someone, battling your way through an eating disorder, or are recovered and wanting to become a future befriender.

We host a variety of events, designed to inform, to support, or to channel your new-found enthusiasm for life and to prepare you for future careers or opportunities. 

 

 

Heal

KITCHEN

Take a look at our latest list of Heal Kitchen events.

Each of our Friendship Lunches and Supportive Suppers are designed to have just small audiences and to feature a speaker or food demonstration, as well as a light ‘shared meal’ at which we can discuss challenges, make friends, and celebrate successes.

Our

Workshops

From dramatherapy to recovery fitness workshops, we’re constantly updating our portfolio of offering.

Check out some of our currently available activities.

Note, some may also be accessible online.

Email us at hello@wednesdayschild.co.uk with the subject line WORKSHOPS to find out more.

Recovery

Retreats

We love the idea of spending a little more time with you.

Our retreats are designed to enable you – and perhaps someone who supports you – to attend an overnight break which is recovery-focused.

Each one is held with a small number of guests, in a beautiful and peaceful property – perfect for considering your healing and allowing you to increase your peer network of support.
