East Lancs Activity Group

Open to: Carers and People with Mental Illness


We've suspended face to face meetings following Government Advice on the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

Group Coordinator: _

The East Lancs Activity Group runs a wide array of activities across Burnley for people living with mental illness. We believe that by providing sports and social activities we can help to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of members and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Our group activities vary from going to the gym to visiting the local cinema to see the latest Hollywood blockbuster. We meet on the first Friday of each month to plan our activities for the following month, so all our members can help decide what we do.

The group is entirely peer led, and is run by Greg and a group of volunteers who each have a personal experience of mental illness. An important part of what we do is providing peer support to each other and sharing our experiences with others facing similar challenges. If you’re interested in finding out more, please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.

Meets in various locations across Burnley.
