A Highly Commendable Night Out!

UPLIFT ended the year in celebratory style at the Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards!

Any excuse for a posh frock - the team put their glad rags on and hot stepped it to Sheffield, where alongside some fabulous organisations we were Highly Commended in the 'Most Innovative Service' category. We were very proud to be nominated against some real forces in mental health services and this is a reflection of the hard work from all of our team and participants. Big thanks and well done to everyone!

Onwards and upwards!

The UPLIFT Army's Merseyside Mission!

What a busy old year the UPLIFT team have had, the last few months of 2013 were jam packed and in true UPLIFT fashion 2014 is off to a flying start! Now that we've had a chance to catch our breath we thought we'd treat you to some glorious pictures of the UPLIFT Army in action!

Meet the troops!

In November of last year UPLIFT were asked to speak at the National Museums Conference in Liverpool, never one to cease an opportunity the fantastic UPLIFT Army donned their vintage attire and jumped on board to spread the joy!

Marching through the conference centre, performing their rousing army chant, they certainly made an impact! Complete with their devised drill they presented the audience with their uplifting 5 WAYS TO WELLBEING message: CONNECT, BE ACTIVE, BE CURIOUS, KEEP LEARNING & GIVE.

The troop went down a storm and we'd like to say a big THANK YOU for all their efforts and hard work, a brilliant day was had by all and we're already looking forward to our next mission!
