It’s Time To Talk, 2019!

To celebrate and make time to talk, Impact will be at the Chiltern Gateway Visitors Centre on Dunstable Downs this Thursday 7th February at 1:30pm to 3:30 for a very relaxed walk across the top of the Downs and back again for a well-earned cuppa and a natter.

Join Us For A Cuppa & A Natter

If you are out and about, why not join us in a gentle stroll and help us continue to break down barriers and talk about mental health.

The suggested walk will be on a pathway suitable for wheelchair access, if required.

Parking is £3.50 for the day, a good excuse to bring a flask, a picnic and enjoy the view!

Just remember to wrap up warm please, whether you sit inside or out of the visitors centre, it can get a bit blowy up there :-)

Hope to see you there!

Terms and Conditions:

  • This is a suggested social event and as such, the walk will not be marshalled or risk assessed by Impact.
  • Impact will not be held responsible for assessing suitability or for any personal loss or accidents/damages incurred.
  • All travel and the purchasing of refreshments and/or car parking fees are the responsibility of visitors.

Antelope – An Award Winning Short Film About Mental Health

Impact are proud to share this powerful short film ‘Antelope’ by Ben Grace. 

A rare insight into the raw and emotional truth of supporting someone going through often inexpressible pain.

Mental ill health effects and causes uncertainty for many people in different ways, especially when it sits on our own doorstep in the shape of a loved one.

We look forward to more genuine films from Ben Grace Films, who has skilfully captured reality.  

World Mental Health Day 2018 in partnership with The Grove Theatre

We had the most amazing, joyful and ‘chatty’ day, celebrating World Mental Health Day with friends at the Grove Theatre.

Macmillan Coffee Morning At The Grove Theatre

Macmillan Coffee MorningFirstly, there is no such thing as too much cake or homemade cheese straws at a Macmillan Coffee Morning at The Grove Theatre!

What a great way to spend a Friday morning, with lovely people, lovely weather and incredibly lovely cake. All enjoyed in equal measures whilst helping to raise funds for this amazing cause.

A big thank you to the Grove Theatre for their typically warm welcome and their dedication to supporting others with another fabulous Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Great to see some Impacter’s getting out and about for the day – all part of our RAMPS!

Also good to see Jackie Bean, Impact Operations Director and Harry Lindsay, BaseCamp Admin Volunteer, tucking into some of the scrumptious home-baked cakes, served by the lovely Ellie Garrett, Head of Operations at the Grove.

If you missed the Macmillan event, don’t worry, you can catch up with everyone on the 10th of October in celebration of World Mental Health Day at the Grove Theatre.

I suspect there may be a bit more cake too!

Learner Survey Results

We recently asked people who had attended either a YOU Programme or YOUR Recovery Pathways courses to provide us with some feedback.

Our learners have given us a fantastic insight into how people maintain their wellbeing and what their journeys look like after completing an Impact course.

We’ll be reporting on many other areas of our work in the coming months and look forward to sharing these with you too.

Thank you to everyone who took part.
