KeepingWell Groups

As part of the direct support that the Hub can offer, KeepingWell Groups can provide a reflective and supportive space for staff to gather and process some of what they have had and continue to experience. The aim of the Hub is to respond with speed to requests for Keeping Well Groups and to make it as easy as possible for you to provide a space for your staff members to begin to recover and reflect. 

What are KeepingWell Groups?

Remembering that the Hub exists to meet additional staff needs arising from the impact of the pandemic, the Keeping Well Groups are intended to be psychologically supportive and not therapeutic in conventional terms. They can be:

  • Weekly/fortnightly/monthly up to 6 sessions
  • Open (drop-in) or closed (e.g. for a specific team)
  • Virtual or on-site (state and internal restrictions allowing)
  • Facilitated by an experienced Hub member from a different part of the health & care system
  • For clinical and/or non-clinical staff
  • Available to any service within the North Central London Integrated Care System

Keeping Well Groups have been kept intentionally undefined in order that they might adapt to meet the emerging needs of the group members. 

These spaces are intended to create an arena where experiences can be processed no matter where in the organisational structure the individuals reside. For instance, it can be enormously helpful for junior staff to witness senior staff express the challenges they have faced. Similarly, it can be important for non-clinical staff to have a space to tell their part of the story.

How can I request a KeepingWell Group for my team or organisation?

To request a KeepingWell Group for your team or organisation, please contact or team via our health chat box or email to arrange for an initial conversation with a Hub member.

In order to provide a KeepingWell Group, the Hub Practitioner will require the following information, which we can think through with you in our initial conversation:

  • A simple outline of group membership – some examples might be:
    • Support for frontline team experience
    • Junior/Senior staff reflective space
    • Non-clinical staff drop-in
    • Exploring support needs (for when you’re not quite sure what you need, but know you need something)
  • Preferred day/time/frequency
  • Group number (we suggest a group size somewhere between 4-10)
