In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Lifecraft has been given additional funding to extend the hours of Lifeline, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough mental health helpline. The line will now be taking calls for an extra five hours a day. The line is now open from 2pm until 11pm.
We are currently able to continue running Lifeline for anyone living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, as well as our counselling and suicide bereavement support services for existing clients.
Lifecraft is a user-led organisation for adults in the Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Newmarket area who have experience of mental health difficulties in their lives.
We offer a wide range of free mental health services to help and support our Members in their wellbeing and recovery.
Our services include creative activities, recovery groups, social activities and employment and volunteering opportunities. We also have an Information Hub, a counselling service, a suicide bereavement support service, and Lifeline, a telephone helpline that runs 365 days a year.
Lifecraft believes people who have experienced mental health difficulties are best placed to help others in the same position. Therefore all our services are user-led and are designed to promote recovery and empowerment.
To access Lifecraft's services (excluding Lifeline and the Suicide Bereavement Support Service) you need to become a member of Lifecraft. To find out more about becoming a Lifecraft member please visit our membership page or contact us.
