The Phoenix Project Ipswich

General Details

We are a small Ipswich based charity that aims to support adults with experience of mental health issues. Our main objectives are to tackle social isolation and support maintenance and recovery of well being through therapeutic and educational activities.

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). Staff are available for support and advice. We meet most Fridays throughout the year 10 am - 2 pm at the Quaker Meeting House, Fonnereau Road, Ipswich. Access is self referral and disabled facilities and access available.

Phoenix Friends is our volunteer led social group. They meet fortnightly 11 am - 1 pm at Quaker Meeting House, they offer company and a cuppa / snack at low cost, open door policy.  These services are currently suspended due to covid-19 but we are currently offering support through creative activities on-line.

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 3 years we have produced bespoke radio shows, produced film and staged and attended cultural & social community events. Contact us for more information.
