Walk about it, mate
What started as one off events in 2020 has become a regular weekly Walk and Talk group in Salford in 2021. These Friday walks are a great way of achieving the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and all attendees get a free hot drink from our community partners The Coffee Collective.

Withington Men’s Group: Tuesdays
Launched in summer 2021 we are delighted to offer a men’s group in the heart of Withington in collaboration with Withington Public Hall, a key community venue.
Levenshulme Men’s Group: Thursdays
Delivered in partnership with Arcon homes we are delighted to offer a weekly group at the fantastic Levenshulme Old Library, another important community venue.
After struggling with my own demons for over 30 years, letting them take the form of addiction which finally came to a head this year when I decided enough was enough and I realised was just surviving not living and sought help. Talk About It Mate has been instrumental in getting me to open up, face my issues and realise I'm not alone.
I met Mike and the MeetUp group when I was at my lowest point. I was nervous but everyone was so welcoming and willing to listen that it proved a turning point for me. The ongoing support of the group has helped me move onwards and upwards with my mental health journey and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s a life changer.
Kick About It Mate
Our Peer Support offer now extends into Football Therapy. We have a regular group which play at 8pm on a Monday at Goals Manchester. To get involved, message us and we can add you to our WhatsApp group. There are plans to extend this community later in 2021.
I met Mike at a business event quickly I felt at ease talking to him and got a sense of support immediately. It’s so good to see groups that Mike is setting up as many people don’t know where to turn to. I think one of the most important resources we have is communication with the right people. Now - if I ever feel as though I need help, I ask for it.
Proud About It Mate
We are excited to team up with Levenshulme Pride as their peer support partner for the 2021 event. We will be delivering peer support sessions for the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies.
