TIME TO CHANGE: a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health problems. W.F. is the first funded hub in London following a successful joint bid (Public Health, CREST Waltham Forest and Community Waltham Forest) to national Time to Change campaign to set up a local Time to Change hub. Hubs are networks of local organisations and individuals committed to tackling negative attitudes and behaviours towards people experiencing mental health problems. The hub is lead by the Council and coordinated by Crest Waltham Forest and and supported by wider partners… The W.F. Hub is seeking local people who have lived experience of mental health problems to become Time to Change champions to change the way people think and act about mental health. Contact Waltham Forest hub co-ordinator, Chris O’Sullivan at  This email address is being protected from spambots.

                                                 THE PEACE OF CHRIST (Written by Eddie O’Corbaidh)


Lord, You gave us the world, let us look after it, You gave us animals, let us look after them,

You gave us family and friends, let us love them, You gave us love, let us share it,

 You gave us faith, let us express it, You gave us trust, let us use it,

You gave us joy and happiness, let us be overcome by it, You gave us life, let us enjoy it,

BUT most of all, you gave us peace, let us embrace it. Amen.
