to keep up to date with all the latest developments

We regretfully announce that Upstream is going to close at the end of March 2018. Over the years, Upstream has engaged thousands of participants in creative and social activity groups. Unfortunately, the current economic climate has made this unsustainable. The trustees would like to thank all involved for their hard work and commitment to the charity.

UPSTREAM reaches out into local communities to help people who are mentally, physically or socially isolated to improve their HEALTH, WELLBEING, QUALITY OF LIFE, and to prolong their INDEPENDENCE.

Our professional Community Mentors give time to individuals to understand their needs, to help them to overcome barriers in their daily lives, and to introduce them to meaningful and stimulating activities and social groups.


People self refer and often come direct to us by word of mouth.  They also access us through family and friends, Health Care professionals, carers and various other community organisations.

We work confidentially, visiting people's homes if invited, to discuss their needs. We introduce people to existing services and community activities and where a community does not already provide what people want, we will encourage the start of new activities to match their need.
