Support Groups

New online support

We understand how hard this time can be and we have created an online group timetable for you. We’ve had to alter some of the times to be able to do this, so please check out the dates and what each group provides on the group’s page.

If you are interested in attending any of our online groups, please email adultwellbeingservices@dorsetmind.uk and we will contact you direct and support you to log in to these groups.

We have already had great feedback from the groups and are really excited to see you there.

Group benefits

Here are some of their benefits:
– They all have a shared aim – to reduce isolation and help people improve their wellbeing.
– Importantly, there are NO waiting times – you can simply turn up. Please note that for our online groups you must register first.
– There is a suggested donation of £3 for each session – without donations we are unable to deliver groups such as these.

We know it can be a little daunting to attend your first session.
Why not bring a support worker or speak to the group facilitator if you need their support to attend.

Please see below for the types of groups we offer:
