Our 2022 vision for The Southsea Wellness Hub is to create a community base for individuals to drop in, receive peer to peer support, and join like-minded individuals eager to better their mental and physical health.
As a company, we are particularly keen to encourage men in our community to talk about their mental health; suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50.

We will be working alongside for-profit and non-for-profit local organisations to provide our community with various activities, with our hub as a central meeting point.
As an example, we will have nutritionists, mental health practitioners, and personal trainers joining us on different days of the week so our community can connect, learn and encourage one another.
We will be open from 6 am, 7 days a week. Alongside our classes, we will also be offering healthy food and drinks, including cold-pressed juices, smoothies, bulletproof coffee, herbal teas, and other healthy snacks.
We are holding this Crowd Funder to appeal to our community to raise £10,000 to refurbish the existing kiosk, which needs to be carefully restored and weatherproofed due to its age.
We also need to purchase new equipment and kit for our classes, and seek further funds to convert the existing BT phone box next to the hub into a mental health box with direct access to a mental health charity for anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide.
The drive behind this project is to create a space for our community to unite. We want to make individuals feel that they're part of something greater and not alone. Rio-Vitalise Southsea Wellness Hub will provide a space for the local community to connect, reach goals while giving safety and security.
