Coming soon - dedicated website for this project
Canerows and Plaits is the only organisation in Wandsworth that has been initiated by mental health service users. It aims to improve mental health care, particularly for people from BME backgrounds.
The Ward Visiting service provides weekly visits to local mental health wards, offering support to in patients and consulting with them about ways that the experience of being in hospital could be improved. The Ward Visiting service will soon be expanded with the addition of a further training option for Peer Support Workers in the community.
Ward Visitors are themselves people who have experience of being in hospital and who have been through our accredited training for the role.
Canerows and Plaits also runs regular consultation meetings and social and arts events and meets with local providers.
Anyone interested in training to become a Ward Visitor should contact Rima Williams
We can provide training and support to organisations who want to adopt our Peer Support model. Call to discuss your needs.
