The Welcome Project – Mental Health and Wellbeing


One in four of us experience mental health problems every year. We believe that nobody should face mental health problems on their own, experience stigma or discrimination. We all have the right to be well both mentally and physically.

Catalyst and The Welcome Project are one of the three lead providers for Community Connections Surrey –   providing friendly and professional support, guidance and activities to increase wellbeing for adults in Surrey Heath, Guildford & Waverley, Farnham, Spelthorne, Runnymede, Woking and West Elmbridge affected by stress, anxiety and depression – who may feel very isolated. It is part of Community Connections, the support for mental health and emotional wellbeing in Surrey funded by Surrey County Council and NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups. For more information go to the Community Connections website.  To read the latest report on Community Connections go to Downloads & Publications.

Catalyst and The Welcome Project team work in partnership with other charities and volunteers to provide a variety of activities and opportunities for adults to support mental health and emotional wellbeing. We work closely with a range of partners such as:


Woking Mind

Guildford Action

Mary Frances Trust

Voluntary Support North Surrey

The Welcome Project is a safe place for me where I can go when life gets difficult for me.
