Starfish were really pleased to work as a partner on Accelerate providing Mental Wellbeing support for Accelerate participants in Coventry and Warwickshire from 2019 – 2021.

Accelerate was a partnership of local organisations providing co-ordinated employment support to people who are at a disadvantage when looking for work. It was a free support service that improved skills and provided training and work experience.

We developed and delivered a number of creative wellbeing projects across our time on the partnership including:

We also provided 1-2-1 wellbeing support sessions based around individuals needs and focussing on creative approaches to:

  • Self help strategies
  • Motivation
  • Recognising your skills and abilities
  • Raising your aspirations
  • Goal setting and the steps you need to reach your goals
  • Identifying what wellbeing barriers you currently have and how we can support you to move forward
  • Understanding Anxiety
  • Low mood

‘Accelerate was a Building Better Opportunities Project funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund. Managed by Coventry & Warwickshire CDA and delivered by a partnership of local organisations.’
