Since 2018

We started in February 2018 as a support group for people with mental health problems. We found that there were a lot of people like us who had been in and out of services but hadn’t found a way to get better.

We noticed that people seemed to thrive when they started being included in a group and built support systems and started getting better.

We opened more sessions to meet demand but now we are looking for our own building so we can support everybody who needs it.

With support from Great Places Housing association, we were able to become a charity in early 2020.

In January 2021 we moved to our current home allowing us to offer more services and additional opening times.

How can you help ?


All our volunteers have lived experience of mental health, if you are able to offer support , why not come along to one of our sessions and see our work.

It can be very rewarding and is a great way to:

  • meet new people
  • gain new or use existing skills
  • get experience
  • make a big difference to your community

There are lots of easy ways to give your time to help others.


We are actively seeking people who can offer special skills or would like to teach a class/workshop.

Please email emma@starblackpool.org for more information.


We are incredibly grateful for the partnership from companies and organisations, enabling us to continue delivering our valuable projects.

If you feel you could offer sponsorship, support or would like to advertise on the site, we would love to hear from you.
