360 Journey to Health

The aim of 360 Journey to Health is to provide and safe and supportive space for clients to develop their self confidence whilst learning new skills.


We offer one to one mentoring and support to our clients which we recognise is the key ingredient that enables them to see their individual value and to grow in confidence.


Journey to Health has two projects: The Cookery Course and the Gardening Project.  Both of these courses provide an opportunity to learn something new over a series of progressive sessions and promotes a healthy body, mind and lifestyle.


The courses run at different times throughout the year.  They are completely free and are open to anyone, there is no criteria to join.  When a course finishes we aim to ensure that every client feels supported in the next steps they choose to take.








What's the best bit about the course?


'Eating with the rest of the group and making new friends.'


'I feel safe here.'


'I especially enjoyed cooking with the ingredients at home.'


"It was a fantastic course from start to finish. I enjoy it every time

It's given me more enthusiasm for cooking!'


What do previous clients say:


The Cookery Course:


Six week course on Thursday mornings


Our main aim is to build confidence socially and cooking meals from scratch.  Over the 6 week course, clients will learn to cook a range of tasty meals using healthy and fresh ingredients with budgeting in mind. The highlight of each session is the social time for clients and mentors to sit down and enjoy the meal they have prepared together.


Clients receive the recipe cards and ingredients from the sessions so they can practice their cooking at home.


The course is supported by various food outlets including: Barkworths Seafoods, Cafe on the Cop, Midland Co-operative, Sainsburys, Shrewsbury Food Hub, Shrewsbury Town Council, Spar Monkmoor, Waitrose, Wenlock Edge farm.


Gardening project:


Thursday afternoons


This exciting small scale 'fork to fork' (gardening fork to table fork) course teaches people very basic

gardening skills within a safe and informal setting with one to one mentoring.  As with other 360 projects, the aim is to build relationships with clients helping build confidence, self-esteem and recognition of self-worth.


It is supported in part by Alan Townsend, our local town councillor, through the local councillor grant scheme with John R Thomas of Church Stretton donating a wealth of plants and vegetables.
