My name is Jamie Wilson and I am a Health and Wellbeing Worker at The Marie Trust.
I have worked in homeless services for almost 20 years and have been with the Marie Trust for 18 months now.
I am also a musician and a cyclist and have experienced first hand the benefits of both in physical and mental well-being. With this in mind and the support of colleagues at the Marie Trust, I try to encourage those who use the service to participate in similar activities. We run mindfulness and relaxation groups via zoom and prior to covid restrictions music, walking and cycling groups.
These activities offer opportunities to engage with something meaningful while creating peer support for others within a safe environment. We hope to continue and expand these groups when we access the new premises which incorporates a space designated for all of the above.
