Butterflies for HOPE

Thank you for scanning our QR code and reaching our Butterflies for HOPE page. Our Butterflies of HOPE have been hand crafted by people within the community of Surrey who often struggle with their emotional wellbeing.
They have created lovely Butterflies at the Catalyst wellbeing groups, to help demonstrate that there is HOPE out there for people.

Butterflies for HOPE – use your butterfly to spread messages of HOPE far and wide. Leave a message for others who may need a reminder that HOPE is round the corner or give it to someone who may need some hope.
Help us spread some hope in the community and join our movement on social media too by tagging us on Facebook @Catalyst support or Instagram @Catalyst_Support and use our hashtag #butterflies4hopesurrey with all your photos. Please keep your butterfly as a reminder that there is always HOPE.

Catalyst Support Thanks Staff, Clients and Community For Its Involvement In The HOPE Project Exhibition

Public Health approached Catalyst along with other Surrey charities on a modest initiative around HOPE (Honouring Opportunity and Possibility for Everyone).

Catalyst is a non-profit organisation working with people to support their physical and mental wellbeing, promoting collective wellness for Surrey residents, including its employees. With a particular focus on the broader determinants of health (things like housing, jobs, and education).

Our work supports population health to enhance physical and mental health outcomes, increase wellbeing, and minimise health inequalities by promoting inclusivity throughout the County. Our employees operate in accordance with our principles of kindness, integrity, and commitment to support the provision of Catalyst services.

A team of staff worked together on this project, and put together an amazing campaign, which included the great idea of crocheted butterflies, where people can leave messages of HOPE linked to our website (https://www.catalystsupport.org.uk/butterflies-for-hope/). The project has reached local, national, and international publicity which optimised the lovely story of bringing HOPE to people and how we can support wellness together.

This project has involved many collaborations, including the 6th Woking Rangers who crocheted the butterflies, and has benefited our clients’ wellness by involving clients, staff and members of their families in the crotchet process. After seeing our butterflies for HOPE, a member of the public created a t-shirt and sweatshirt, with proceeds being donated to Catalyst to help us reach people within our communities further.

We held an exhibition as part of the project, over the weekend of 23rd and 24th June. The charity was able to demonstrate how one small initiative can honour our strategy of supporting wellness together and motivate additional projects to share their work.

Our clients requested they participate actively in the exhibition and share how HOPE has improved their health and wellbeing and how they were inspired by the project. The initiative has helped staff better understand the challenges and opportunities people face, and by holding the exhibition in our community’s (Guildford town centre) brought the community together over the June weekend.

The narrative of HOPE is not just about the butterflies for HOPE (#butterflies4hopesurrey) but included a trip to Southall by Shifa, who empower Asian women to support their wellbeing, offered guided History Walks, young parents’ group who took the butterflies to Wisley for members of the public to leave messages of HOPE. The LGBT group created a jigsaw entitled Paradox and Blossoms LGBT and the 6TH Woking Rangers created artwork and a client developed kaleidoscopes to help him with his mental wellbeing.

New Day

Just Breathe – Focus on breathing.


Go gently

Be kind to yourself



Hope is taking the des from despair, and replacing it with repair, hope is also an intention, cherish hope everyday, it will get better! Hope can’t be taken from you, it’s yours forever!


You have survived 100% of your worst days so far. You can do this. You’re not alone. ☀️



Always believe it will be alright


Self speak

Stand tall, be proud and remind yourself each day of what you’ve achieved.


Walking together

When trials and tribulations get you down, or are just in the way…remember you do not walk alone…a problem shared is a problem halved…wise words I have grown up with…walk with someone, talk with them learn to listen and take the next step however painful, you will get their and feel better for it.


Believe you can

Believe you can and you will you are stronger than you think


Small and achievable steps….

‘The secret of getting ahead, is getting started’



You have survived 100% of your worst days. You can do this. You’re not alone. ☀️



Recovery is a non-linear journey of discovery, reflection and healing



Recovery is not linear but recovery is possible.


Choose hope

Hope makes you a force to be reckoned with. It is passion, it is courage, it is the expectation of better days, even when you’re at your breaking point. Choose hope, be the architect of your destiny.


Be Brave

Breath and take baby steps each day xx



Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.



Remember, when you feel you have nothing, you will always have hope. That can never be taken from you. No matter what you lose, good onto hope. That is yours… always.



Hope is all around, although you may not notice it there is always some sort of hope in life… I hope that it all works out in the end..


Positive vibes

There is life beyond my diagnosis, I will be ok.


My favourite quote

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
Bernard M. Baruch



I am stronger than my mental health issues, I am stronger than my diagnosis, I am stronger than anything that tried to destroy me.



Grief is relentless but so is hope.


Hope is important

Planting seeds of happiness can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe tomorrow will be better, we can bear todays hardship.



Still I Rise. Maya Angelou


Smile: A Poem by Spike Milligan

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
I’d passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin,
don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!


Believe in yourself

“I am thankful to all those who said ‘No’ to me. It’s because of them, I did it myself.”
– Albert Einstein



There is always hope 🦋🦋



Love is infectious, all it takes is try your best to show love to the ones closest to you, the people you encounter. By doing this you have already brightened up the days of those you have touched, which in turn they have more love in their hearts to do the same. Sometimes sit up and think let’s give more Love ❤️


The best is yet to come

Good things take time! Your potential is endless so don’t forget to smile 🙂


Hope and Love

Everyone needs hope, love & a smile to tackle whatever comes their way.



Stand up for what you believe in, even if everyone else is still sitting down. 🦋



You ARE enough


Hope you will be brave enough to reach out.

When all hope seems to have gone and the tears seem never ending. Reach out for hope. Fight for hope. Give hope a chance.
You are stronger than you can imagine. Come to a group meeting and discover the sense of hope. Together we come, all of us looking for hope and it is found in new friendships offering support and guidance by each unique experience.


One day at a time

There’s a crack in everything. That’s how light gets in.


Keep going

There is hope in all circumstances. Keep going each day, take one day at a time & don’t think too far ahead or too much in the past. Be in the moment.

Nelson Mandela‘s Hope Quote

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

Keep hoping, keep trying

The flower that blooms in the worst adversities, it is the most beautiful.

Infinite Hope

We must accept infinite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
— Martin Luther King, Jr
