Impact is a social enterprise based in Cheshire, offering innovative and proven training and adult learning programmes for Wellbeing and Recovery.

Our facilitators are all highly qualified coaches and trainers with extensive experience of working with vulnerable groups in the community and those with mental health conditions. Originally providing training and support in Ellesmere Port local community, we are now funded by Cheshire West and Chester Council to deliver Adult Community Learning across the region.

We aim to develop the confidence of disadvantaged communities and individuals who experience deep seated and long term issues that prevent personal growth and support individuals to gain employment or develop enterprises.
