A volunteer-run charity is expanding beyond Fakenham with a new outreach scheme to promote health and wellbeing to residents in Dereham.

First Focus has begun holding meetings at Dereham library, giving people the chance to drop by and speak to qualified professionals about issues such as depression and mental health.

The sessions run every Friday between 10am and 2pm and they are open to anyone who wishes to make a booking.

Over the last 15 years the charity has supported thousands of people in Fakenham and provided a social centre for people who feel isolated by providing professional advice on numerous issues.

When the group was established, it had 350 people using its services but that number has expanded to now reach almost 4,000 people each year.

To book, phone 07415 741921 
or 01328 855083.
