Wonderful Life Academy

Date funded: May 2023

Blue Light Card Foundation is funding a series of workshops, delivered by Wonderful Life Academy, to improve mental health and wellbeing within the Blue Light community.

Sectors supported: Blue Light community

Wonderful Life Academy brings together a combination of coaching techniques with NLP (Neuro- Linguistic Programming).

This grant will fund workshops, led by a qualified wellbeing coach, utilising a combination of coaching techniques, NLP and mindfulness exercises to empower beneficiaries to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

Within the workshops, there is a focus on balance across mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being. The workshops are held outside of the work environment and often bring together members of different organisations who are able to share different experiences and perspectives on how their role impacts their mental health and wellbeing.

Attendees of workshops will experience many benefits 

  • improved physical wellbeing through participation in wellbeing walks and other physical activity 
  • improved mental health and wellbeing through focussed activities and coaching  
  • improved emotional wellbeing through group exercises and involvement in activities,  
  • improved resilience to the impact of poverty on their mental health through targeted approaches to resilience  
  • improved social inclusion and togetherness due to group activities and having a place to share their emotions.  


Neil Gowing, founder and CEO of Wonderful Life Academy said, “The grant from the Blue Light Card Foundation will enable us to continue to provide our mental health and wellbeing workshops to Blue Light workers and other members of our community for the rest of this year and beyond.  Their support gives us the security to fulfil our future plans and make the charity self-sustainable for years to come.”
