Our mental health support includes counselling, a support group, therapeutic and confidence building activities and complementary therapies.

Derby Women’s Swans Walking Group

Our service-user led walking group meets on the second Friday of every month. The group has both therapeutic and social benefits. Many of our current members feel that they benefit from gentle walking to improve their wellbeing, and we always stop for a coffee and chat en route. Walks will aim to take place within walking distance of our location in Derby city centre.   Occasionally we do have day trips out where we will catch a service bus, Gold Card accepted.  Please note that we do not cover any expenses.  For more information, please call 01332 341633.
