Over the next three months there will be opportunity for VCSE organisations in Greater Manchester to be trained in and deliver the Mental Wellbeing classes Living Life to the Full and Reclaim Your Life.
Yaran NW CIC are running a Living Life to the Full Train the Trainer course, online, on Tuesday 26th October 9:30 – 4:00pm. If you wish to attend please can you email rokhsana [at] yarannorthwest.com
Reflection Hub are running a Living Life to the Full Train the Trainer course, in person, on Wednesday 24th November 9:30 am. If you wish to attend please can you email admin [at] reflecteen.org.uk
Desired are experienced Community Trainers who may be able to support the following communities of identity or experience:
- People from BAME communities
- People living with long term physical and mental health conditions
- Disabled people
- Social isolated older people
- Military veterans
- People who are newly or long term unemployed
- People who identify as LGBTQ+

Once you have attended the course you will receive a license (valid until October 2022) and an online log in for all the resources. VCSE organisations will also be able to draw down a £60 attendance contribution and apply for a small grant which will contribute towards the cost of delivering the programme. We would expect that if you receive this training you will deliver at least two sets of classes that run for 6 weeks, 1.5 hours per week.
Living Life to the Full (LLTTF) is one of the world’s most used wellbeing support packages. It aims to provide key information using everyday non-complex language. People learn to; understand why they feel as they do, choose to do activities that improve wellbeing, identify blocks or activities that make them feel worse, boost their confidence, understand and change their sleep, become more assertive, calm anxious worries and be more compassionate.
There are class resources translated into Farsi and Urdu to facilitate delivery in some community languages by native speakers. Classes have been delivered in Farsi and some in Urdu are planned.
Funded by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, in Greater Manchester, there are a number of different ways to engage with the suite of Living Life To The Full resources to cater for different preferences. There is access to online self-guided resources (courses, e-books, translated e-books, videos and worksheets) www.gmlifeskills.com and there is now an opportunity to join our community of community trainers who will help us to deliver LLTTF classes in the community.
