More about Wishing Well

The Wishing Well was founded as a community project in 2002. In April 2007, it became a stand-alone social enterprise. The vision to provide holistic services for all areas of the community was the blueprint for the organisation. By acknowledging that any situation or crisis can be made up by multifactorial circumstances, Wishing Well sought to offer support to the most vulnerable members of our society.

Born in Crewe and Nantwich in Cheshire, The Wishing Well became the focal point for many individuals, groups and families.

The open-door policy means that many services are shaped, designed, developed, and delivered by the community. The organisation has experienced substantial growth in recent years and is acknowledged as a responsible, reputable, and trusted leading provider of many health and wellbeing initiatives in South Cheshire.
