Open Opportunities

Open Opportunities is a community group, supported by Bath Mind and Virgin Care Community Links team, for anyone who wants help to improve their mental and physical wellbeing.

Open Opportunities members support each other within a relaxed, social environment every Monday 11am-2.00pm at the Manvers Street Open House, Bath. The focus is on taking small steps towards recovery, social interaction and activities of interest to the group.

There is a small charge of 2.50 each week. On the first Monday of each month there will be an opportunity for members to cook and eat together. Lunch will cost 4 (which includes the 2.50 above).

If there is a specific aim that you want to achieve staff and volunteers will work with you to plan a way forward.
