We are very proud of what we do at The Hut, today we had the daughter of one of our volunteers come and spend the day with us. She wanted to get an understanding of what we do, why people volunteer and a better undertanding of mental health. Emma gave her some training like our volunteers get with us and then she spent time supporting some of our members in the craft session.
Breaking down barriers and stigma around mental health and learning disabilities and everyone just being part of The Hut community is so important and we were happy to have someone who wants to learn and understand more! Thank you for coming and visiting us for the day
We have had an exciting couple of sessions on Food awareness with the Recovery Group who book our Engine Room for their sessions – Emma our Service manager delivered their training, she also offers other training and if you require further info on any of the courses we offer please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
Well done to all who attended
The Hut had a visit from MP Rachael Maskell and Cllr Margaret Wells this afternoon, she met with trustees, staff, volunteers, parents and most importantly our members . Thank you for visiting
What is iMUSE?
Come along and try iMUSE at The Hut!
iMUSE provides a space where you can relax, forget the outside world and feel free from anxiety and stress.
IMUSE is an interactive multi-sensory environment. It uses a combination of vibro-acoustic technology, music and visuals to provide a 1-to-1 creative and therapeutic experience.
Each 1-to-1 session lasts for 30 minutes. Our facilitator works with you to find out which sounds, music and visuals help you to relax and focus. They then use these to personalise your iMUSE experience so it’s tailor-made for you.
“iMUSE is really good! I can go into a zone of my own where I can relax and feel free from the negative stresses that I feel most of the rest of the time. It allows me some time out to forget this negativity and it is also helping me to learn to cope better. I’ve found that by concentrating on the visual images I can focus and block out negative thoughts, be creative again, as well as helping me to get through the day more easily.” Joe, mental health service user
