The Five Ways to Wellbeing

The Cinema Museum has a wellbeing business plan – it follows the New Economic Foundation’s ‘Five ways to Wellbeing’ – everything we do is about people and how we can help people Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, and Give. Our aim extends to helping and supporting friends and partners who also aim to support the concept of wellbeing for everyone – there are various ways we can help you:

  1. Wellbeing Marketing: helping you get your wellbeing events and ideas ‘out there’
  2. Wellbeing Trailers: the chance to showcase your wellbeing events at our events and turn our audiences into your audience
  3. Relaxed Screenings: for children; families; those who need special support and those with audience-challenging behaviour
  4. Event and Screening Sponsorship: fully funded and staffed screenings to help you raise awareness/money for your charity/cause
  5. Subsidised use of The Cinema Museum: for local organisations that plan meetings, consultation and conferences around wellbeing
  6. Free Tickets for Local People: our own ‘last minute local’ free ticket offer to encourage our neighbours to connect and be active
  7. Volunteering Opportunities: standard volunteering, volunteering to get into work and volunteering for those with support needs
  8. Memory Road Project: for our elder citizens, where we aim to work with local partners to help change the experience of ageing
  9. Education Partnerships: long term strategic and delivery partnerships to help our local learning institutions
  10. Partnership Working: long term strategic partnerships with those who want our support with their wellbeing work
  11. Co-Produced Project: discrete projects where we work to raise funds and deliver joint projects with likeminded partners
  12. Wellbeing Business Planning Talks: sharing how we created our wellbeing business plan and turned it into an action plan

The Big Idea – How it Works

We are a charity with limited resources. We have been working to improve life for local people for many years. There is less and less funding around for local projects but we want to do more and more – and that presents challenges. In order to meet those challenges we have a plan that will help us be more efficient and effective – and that involves dividing our wellbeing work into 12 separate offers. We are run entirely by volunteers and receive no core funding – we occasionally win bids to deliver wellbeing events – and when there is no funding we cover the costs from our own resources. As such there are limits to the amount that we can do – but we always do our best.

What to Do If You Are Interested

  • Confirmation you qualify (live locally or are a charity/organisation working on the wellbeing agenda in Lambeth/ Southwark)
  • Identification of which of the above projects you are interested in
  • Details of any timelines, specific dates or deadlines

If we think we can help we will send you a project briefing pack so that you know how the particular project that you are interested in works.

Wellbeing Marketing Project

We […]
