Community Prevention & Engagement Team

The Community Prevention and Engagement Team [CPET] aims to involve people in their local communities via bespoke 1:1 personalised support. This will allow people to improve and maintain their mental health and wellbeing by making community connections, support networks and gain meaningful occupation. Through a recovery focused support plan; CPET aims to build service users confidence and resilience to achieve personal goals. By practicing person centred, strength based approaches we empower individuals to support their own mental health and wellbeing through social inclusion.



CPET aim to provide a wider range of resources to improve mental health and wellbeing within local populations. Using community cohesion to promote, develop and sustain local assets within communities through peer support, groups and projects to build more awareness, resilience and integration.



Community Asset Development is a large part of what we do as a service, creating projects that serve the community, helping them to grow and become sustainable. One of our current projects is Connect My Community NHS (CMCNHS) which serves as a connector between local groups/social prescribers and the people within Central Lancashire and helps bring them together both online and offline, in addition to providing information from funding to emergency NHS/community news and contacts.



Our regular events include:


Wellness & Recovery Workshops - The Wellness and Recovery workshops are for people who experience poor mental health, to assist them in developing an effective plan to aid their wellbeing and recovery journey.

CAD Talks - Our Community Asset and Development Talks bring together a panel made up from some of the community groups on our CMCNHS platform to openly discuss subjects affecting the people of Central Lancashire from Mental Health to Social Isolation. CAD Talks are in association with Wellbeing Lancashire.

Funding Clinics - An hour drop-in event in association with Our Lancashire, to help the community groups within Central Lancashire access relevant funding and what funders may look for in the application process.

Peer Support Training - Open to people looking to start a community group or have an existing one, who need training on how run sessions and groups.
