Rowan House

Rowan House is our Penrith Wellbeing Centre and our organisations main office base. Located in the heart of the town it encompasses our local information service, charity shop and four floors of public spaces, therapy rooms and office space.

Most importantly we feel Rowan House is a sanctuary where anyone experiencing mental health problems or in distress can feel safe, accepted and warmly welcomed. Rowan House is also the base for our supported volunteering and return to work programmes and the centre and shops are run mainly by a supportive and dedicated community of volunteers.

We are also keen to make Rowan House availible to other groups wanting to deliver or develop mental health and wellbeing services in the area.

Rowan House has a variety of rooms/spaces to hire on an hourly, daily or permanent basis, from small consulting/therapy rooms through to meeting rooms seating 20+.
