ABOUT US

We Be Kids is a new start up project in 2021 that aims to bring online inspiration to families so they can confidently take part in offline activities that boost their wellbeing.

At We Be Kids we follow our 1,2,3,4,5 model:

  1. We have 1 main aim- to help boost the wellbeing of children and families.
  2. We believe that positive wellbeing can be described by 2 main factors- being healthy and feeling content.
  3. We believe that making connections is key to wellbeing- 3 connections- in particular; connections with Nature, connection with community, and connection with ourselves.
  4. In order to help people boost their wellbeing we offer resources in 4 specialist areas; storytelling, nature art, nature activities and yoga and mindfulness.
  5. By engaging with We Be Kids children and families will be actively living the 5 ways to wellbeing: Get Active, Be Mindful, Think Community, Keep Learning and Practice Kindness.

We Be Kids is founded and run by Danny English and AnneMarie Trevena. Between them they have over 40 years experience working around the world in the fields of education and wellbeing.

More information can be found here: https://www.webekids.net/about-us

We Be Kids add new material each week to their online library, families can access the resources by visiting www.webekids.net and all the material is free.

We Be Kids is eager to make connections and work in partnership with other organisations who value the wellbeing of their staff, families, clients and the wider community. We are already working in partnership with local authorities in areas representing family services and education. If you are interested in helping us boost the wellbeing of children and families then please consider partnering

The power of football to engage, enthuse and motivate people irrespective of age, gender and ethnicity is now recognised on many stages.

ABOUT US

Mindsight comes from heart. A heart to do everything we can to support individuals in the education, management and support of themselves and others, in all aspects of health and wellbeing.

Educating the head and empowering the heart, we help businesses and third sector organisations focus on their number one asset; their people, so they thrive in and beyond the workspace. 

Equipping individuals, we help to build healthy, thriving cultures, flipping the care and support from the few to the many. With a sustainable plan, delivery and support we create amazing places to work, with increased performance and enhanced personal belief. We aren’t workplace wellbeing; we are lifestyle change.

EVERY ONE of our interactions WILL create at least 6 more positive wellbeing engagements. Our 6 Connections Model WILL impact 25,000+ individuals in the next 10 years and WE WILL positively impact negative mental health statistics.

Big dream? You bet it is!

Roast N Toast is our culture shaper over a coffee! A unique, safe environment, to discuss the behaviours that impact our daily health and wellbeing. Always Flipping the Focus to turn the negative into positive.

Fun, refreshing and non-commercialised, with limitless potential to share and benefit from thoughts, hints and tips, Roast N Toast is a place where you can come as you are. It isn’t networking, it’s support for each other – at all levels and it happens every week. Contact connect@mindsight.org.uk to join.

 

WAYS TO TRADE WITH THIS SOCIAL ENTERPRISE 

We help businesses focus on their number one asset; their people, so they thrive in and beyond the workspace. Based in Burnley and concentrating initially on the Lancashire-to-Manchester area, Mindsight aims to act as a ‘wellbeing architect’, going into businesses, educational establishments and charitable organisations to look at what they are doing and not doing in the area of wellbeing and mental health. Out of this diagnostic will come the plans and groundwork to deliver a practical, sustainable, culture-changing service, relevant to their needs.
