CHWB was established in 2009 to promote positive mental health within the Whiterock area of Belfast. The Centre evolved from the long established Ballymurphy’s Women’s Centre which was founded originally in 1996 as a direct result of the lack of statutory services in area.
The Centre for Health and Wellbeing, now in its 22nd year of service to the community, engages with self-employed complementary therapists to provide a wide range of therapies to those affected by poor physical and/or mental well-being. The centre provides approximately 2100 therapy sessions annually benefiting 350 individuals.
The centre receives funding from the Victims and Survivors Service under the Victim Support Programme for Victims and Survivors of the Northern Ireland Troubles/Conflict. The centre is also in receipt of funding from Belfast Regeneration Office and the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. The centre will also generate income from the provision of outreach services to the business, voluntary and community sectors.
The Department for Communities provides salary and overhead support, through Neighbour Renewal funding, and the centre is also in receipt of funding from Belfast Health and Social Care Trust to provide complementary therapies for Carers.
Over the years the Centre has attracted support from many charitable trusts and foundations most recently from Comic Relief Core Funding Programme, Halifax Foundation NI and the Big Lottery Awards for All. Support which allows us to provide services to for example: housebound carers, vulnerable disadvantaged school children or indeed older people who may be at risk.
