Spectrum People

Spectrum People is an independent charity which provides meaningful activities and support for vulnerable adults across the Wakefield district. Working with partner organisations, our projects and events allow vulnerable people to access:
- opportunities for training and education
- community spaces providing friendship and fellowship
- cultural and recreational activities aimed at building self esteem and confidence
- support such as community recovery and counselling
- information about wellbeing opportunities in their local area

We are also committed to raising awareness of factors which affect social inclusion for vulnerable people (including mental ill health, loneliness, homelessness or unstable housing, financial difficulties, physical ill health and problematic substance use) and working together to help them overcome these challenges.
