Where are you today?
We meet people where they are. We aren’t a crisis service but believe peer support is an accessible way to connect with others while improving our mental health.
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.
We have recently added a Thursday walk in Didsbury.
We are proud to support Walk About It Mate, a relaxed and chilled out way to talk about what is going on. We appreciate the work that’s been going on in the community, and it’s work that needs to be done

Just show up!
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 for mental fitness.
We have a regular group which play at 8pm on a Monday (locations vary). To get involved, message us and we can add you to our WhatsApp group. There are plans to extend this community as things progress further.
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
Having launched at Levenshulme Pride as their peer support partner for the 2021 event, we successfully delivered our peer support format to members of the LGBTQIA+ community. We’re excited to extend this offer into regular events and Meetups with an LGBTQIA+ focus!
We are now offering peer support centred around Neurodiversity. As each person’s experiences are unique, we provide an encouraging safe space where these can be shared authentically and celebrated as we strive towards a more inclusive world.
