LOOK Wellbeing Weekend

August 15th, 2017 / View in own page?

Look Wellbeing Weekend : 15-17 September 2017.
As part of our fabulous mentoring project, Look are excited to announce our first wellbeing weekend! Look mentoring brings young people with a vision impairment together
for peer support, through online messaging and a programme of face to face events. Mentors are aged 18-29 and mentees are aged 11-18.
The wellbeing weekend is designed for people interested in being a mentor. The focus of the event is on how to take care of our mental and physical wellbeing,
and how best to pass that knowledge on to our younger mentees. Workshops and discussions will include: coping with anxiety; sight-loss and stress; how
to get active; mindfulness and meditation; yoga; poetry; walks…. The event will take place in the gorgeous Herefordshire countryside, a taxi ride from
Hereford train station and a short stroll from the river wye. Accommodation, vegetarian  meals and Cake will be provided.
This event is free of charge to those who sign up for the Look mentoring project. You can find out more about our mentoring project


Please get in touch with Megan for more details.


LOOK-UK mentors win national award

On Wednesday 5th July, we attended the Brightside Trust Mentoring awards and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Some of LOOK’s mentors and mentees were shortlisted for two awards; mentee of the year and mentoring pair of the year.

We are delighted to inform you that Danielle and Jack won mentoring pair of the year! They were presented with a certificate and engraved trophy. This is a big achievement for LOOK and our mentors and mentees as our mentoring project is still in its pilot year.

A huge thank you to the Brightside Trust for the nomination and for such a wonderful evening.

Have a listen to the audio below which is of Danielle and Jack winning their award.
