A wellbeing movement for parents & carers.

About

The Positivitree is a social enterprise & mental wellbeing business which helps the families of children with additional health or care needs.

We do this by empowering parents & carers with a self-care tool-kit that enables them to be the best version of themselves.

Focussing on self-care, we have created a parent-led wellbeing movement.

We provide wellbeing activities designed to meet the needs of the parent-carer community taking in to account their responsibilities & time constraints.

We offer online support, social groups, workshops & classes.

By offering a flexible programme, we empower parent-carers with essential tools to take ownership of their wellbeing.

The Story So Far

In 2014 our founders' son was diagnosed with a rare cancer called Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. He was 3 years old. He successfully completed a year of treatment & rang the end of treatment bell. In January 2018 the disease returned and he had to begin a second treatment protocol involving two years of chemotherapy.

As parents they found that the best way for them to cope was to create a positive force-field around their family. They called on mentors & coaches to help them develop their mindset. They worked hard to focus on how to make good of their situation and pledged to use their experience to positively impact the lives of others.

In Spring of 2018 an opportunity arose to join the Lloyds Bank Social Entrepreneurs Programme with School for Social Entrepreneurs in Liverpool.

They ran a number of test sessions, conducted research within the parent-carer community and developed a pilot project which is being funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

The biggest challenge for parent-carers is finding time to focus on their wellbeing as they juggle parental responsibilities, complex caring responsibilities, work & running a household. We recognise that in order to address their needs we must offer a flexible service that’s accessible & led by the individual’s needs.

We’ll do this by offering a range of monthly events were parent-carers get the chance to re-connect with their own needs for a short period. We teach them the power of self-care & help them develop their own toolkit that they can easily apply to their day to day lives. This is in line with the National Lottery Awards priority of ‘bringing people together & building strong relationships in & across communities’.

We’ll run a 4-weekly programme that will rotate so that everyone has a chance to access the whole offer & find out what suits them best.
The events are as follows:
•Positivi-tea; supper club & cookery class
•Movement classes (yoga, ZUMBA)
•Wellbeing workshops; mindfulness, mindset, meditation, managing stress,
•Holistic therapy
