City and Hackney Wellbeing Network

Holistic support to improve physical and mental health

The City and Hackney Wellbeing Network, offers high-quality free support to help people prevent the onset of mental health problems and alleviate issues such as stress, anxiety and low mood. We also offer support to adults with severe and enduring mental health conditions.

A dynamic and diverse partnership of eleven specialist mental health providers, the Wellbeing Network empowers people towards better mental and physical wellbeing. We offer an exciting range of groups and courses to support people to improve their mental wellbeing, physical health, social networks and daily living skills.

One named ‘network navigator’ will be available to ensure that people receive the right kind of support at the right time and that support is well-coordinated.

If you were ever wondering what your camera settings mean, feel slightly overwhelmed by the complexity and still shoot on the auto-mode without having much control over the image, this course is for you! We will demystify the main functions on your camera so that by the end of the course you will have full control of the manual settings and your photos. Each week we will examine one of the main components of camera exposure: ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Additionally you will learn about lenses and what they do, composition rules and how to apply the theory into practice with plenty of hands-on exercises. The zoom lessons offer a great platform to review your work and exchange ideas. You will need a camera with a manual setting, be it a compact camera, a mirror-less camera, or a SLR camera. The camera can be analogue or digital
