Saturdays from 1 June to 20 July 
The Thames Community Hub, Barking

Shed INC will provide a safe, creative, peer support space/ network, for residents living with mental  health conditions and experiencing complex health treatments, waiting for treatment or managing a life changing diagnosis.


We are pleased to have just successfully received funding for Shed INC, a new, creative, peer support workshop for residents who are experiencing a life changing diagnosis, complex health treatments, waiting for treatment or experiencing serious social anxiety.

Funded by The Community Chest for Social Prescribing Grants, aimed at delivering projects designed to address health inequalities, to enable capacity building and support social prescribing activities for the residents across Barking and Dagenham.

Shed INC will be a chance to talk, a creative outlet to share challenges and what helps; a small, safe group that is intuitive, nourishing and creative, challenging feelings of isolation and helping to improve recovery.

 Art & Advocacy


  • A chance to talk, empowering self-expression and awareness

  • New avenues of communication and local practical and emotional support. Helping each other, exchanging, sharing, mutual benefit

  • Creative outlet to address risk factors/ behaviour/ signs, e.g. smoking, diet, self-care and visualise positive action

  • Befriending and creative social sessions aimed at reducing loneliness and ruminating

  • Lowering risk of depression and rates of recurrence of certain health conditions

  • Sharing challenges helps to contextualise, focus on what participants can control.

Shed INC
Saturday workshops 

​Each week we will explore different themes, exploring our own personal stories to create individual visual action plans:


  • Recognising what we can control and what we can't.

  • How we can manage our own health

  • Recognising our symptoms

  • Putting actions into place whether that is:

  1. Personal responses/ behaviours

  2. Reaching out for peer support

  3. Contacting your health practitioners
