Old friends and new are welcome to join us in a cuppa and a natter! We’re planning on having more cake than you can shake a stick at, with the odd healthy biscuit thrown in for healthy wellbeing measure.

A special thank you to Rhea and Ellie at The Grove Theatre for their kindness, generosity and support
Welcome to the New Academic Year 2017-18 – The Impact team are thrilled to once again be delivering the fantastic You Programmes and our empowering Pathways to Recovery courses.
One of the most important skills I’ve gained from both programs is that I cannot control my past but I can control my future!
Please note, the venue for The Pathways To Recovery Course starting on May 17th, will now be hosted at the Grove Theatre, Dunstable and not Biggleswade.
From the age of 13, I was severely anorexic, bulimic and depressed, which madly enough was aspirational for my generation. Having a medically defined label was a status symbol, and I had the status, a pyrrhic victory. Continually shifting between not wanting to live and being on the brink of death, under a crumbling facade of highly successful student and popular teenager with a vigorous social life.
We are excited to be planning a Mental Health Volunteers Information Session (VIS) to be held in August 2017.
Let me tell you how amazing it feels to receive a message like the following, telling us what a difference our mental health peer support programmes are making to people’s lives.
Change, or, starting something new, often brings about unforeseen challenges.
Impact is no exception to change and change is a regular visitor to our door.
