The Phoenix Project Ipswich

We are a small Ipswich based charity that aims to support adults with experience of mental health issues.

Our core project is Phoenix Club: A welcoming and supportive place to meet friends and enjoy a low cost tasty lunch. We have a range of activities available: board games, art & crafts, walking group and leisure learning courses (subject to availability). We meet most Fridays throughout the year.

In partnership with ActivIpswich we regularly offer Active Afternoons (Boccia and New Age Kurling) Accessible to all (including wheelchair users) with tea/coffee/cake. This takes places most Wednesdays from 1 - 3 pm throughout the year (except Summer and Xmas breaks) at Quaker Meeting House

True Thoughts Project. In partnership with Ipswich Community Media/I.O Radio. This project is about combating isolation, tackling stigma and giving a voice to people with experience of mental health issues. Established over the last 2 years we have produced bespoke radio programmes, produced film and staged and attended cultural & social community events.

Phoenix Friends is our volunteer led social group which meets alternate Tuesdays, tea/coffee & snacks available.
