Our Services

The Link Charitable Trust provides a range of services for people of all ages, including young adults, care leavers, and families.

Healthy Living Group

This group is about supporting each other to improve our health and wellbeing. Good health isn’t just about eating healthily and exercise. Good health includes having positive mental health, a healthy self image as well as a healthy, well balanced lifestyle in all area’s of life. The group aims to support making these changes informative and fun, with no weighing or fixed ‘diet’. Just healthy living and fun ways to help us feel better about ourselves and our lives.

Craft & Chat Group

Craft & Chat is our group for anyone who loves crafts. This can be anything from Mindful colouring, painting, to sewing and knitting, and is for all abilities. Maybe you will also learn a new skill! It’s exactly what it says on the tin – you can come and have a craft, chat and cuppa with others who want to do exactly that. Don’t worry if you’re new to crafts, come along and find a new activity to enjoy.

Men’s Space

This group is for Men in the Redcar and Cleveland area who would like to get together, seek advice and chat. You are welcome to come whether you want to talk or not. This group is led entirely by you and supported by one of our counsellors.

Anxiety Workshops

Anxiety is our body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s to come. Especially in these times of uncertainty feelings of anxiety can be extreme, last for long periods of time and can interfere with your life. This Workshop consists of four, 2-hour sessions over 4 weeks to help you understand and manage your anxiety.

Low Mood Workshops

Our low mood workshop is a four week workshop that runs for two hours once a week. This workshop will help you gain an understanding of low mood and how it can impact on daily functioning. It will focus on increasing positive behaviours and explore ways that you can improve your emotional wellbeing.

Women’s Walk ‘N’ Talk

This Group has been set up to complement the men’s only Walk ‘N’ Talk Group in Redcar and Cleveland.

Both Men and Women Deal with Mental Health Challenges and sometimes its nice to spend time in a safe space with like minded women.

We offer planned walks for women of all abilities on a weekly basis, and at a leisurely pace, to support healthy living and exercise as well as a time to enjoy and chat with others.

One to One Support

Our 1:1 interventions are delivered by an experienced adult mental health practitioner. We can provide both emotional and practical support which will help you to manage your mental health and recognise your own mental health stressors, whilst developing coping strategies to improve your mental wellbeing. 1:1 interventions will be provided in a safe, supportive environment where you will be able to talk to an experienced professional about what’s on your mind. We will work with you to help you achieve your personal goals and offer advice and guidance along the way.

Chat ‘N’ Chill

Our Chat ‘N’ Chill group is a place for adults to chat, have a hot drink, share their feelings and discuss the world (whether that be politics or the best type of potato).

It is facilitated by an Adult Mental Health Worker who can provide some support and a listening ear if required and available to adults from 18 to 80.

Kids Art & Social Group

The LCT Art & Social Club is a friendly, inclusive group for 5-12yr olds, where we explore creativity and play. We use the fabulous natural environment around us like Redcar Beach and Locke Park, to engage the children in a mix of art and social activities including foraging, rock pooling and football. We can also provide the opportunity to venture further afield to explore locations such as New Marske Woods. When the weather is not with us we have a fabulous art space in The Palace Hub right on Redcar’s lovely esplanade. Come along and be creative, come and find a friend, come and play.

There are many different types of talking therapy, but they all aim to: give you a safe time and place to talk to someone who won’t judge you help you make sense of things and understand yourself better.

Family Hub

This can include support around looking after our well-being, parenting strategies, basic budgeting and even having someone to talk to once a week to reduce social isolation. We take pride in our flexible approach and have strived to continue to remain accessible both online and offline throughout the pandemic. With this in mind, we have created various resources that we are providing for free to our families within the service, and other families seeking support and help.
