Birchwood Social Inclusion Team


Today our social inclusion team have been engaging with the community and surrounding areas for nearly 12 months. During that time, we have set up sessional work, befriended local people, supported language classes, filmed education food videos, and continued to offer our Birchwood community shop. Not just this but we have helped people gain employment as well as volunteering. All the while keeping up to date with the new local Covid guidelines and rules. We have more ideas in the pipeline, and we hope to roll them out soon.


Psy-Tap Therapy

Psy-tap, (Psycho-sensory techniques and Practices) is known in the therapy world for its super speed and rapid long-lasting results and is causing a stir among therapists across the globe, with many clients leaving after only one session stating that their issue is resolved.

Birchwood will be offering FREE 2hr sessions every Tuesday evening, for anyone who feels they have tried everything else.
