Enjoying each other and the great outdoors

One of our latest initiatives as we phase from remote services to some face to face support is to host socially distant befriending groups.

We are now providing weekly groups for our most vulnerable participants

When?

Groups are mostly meeting Monday, Tuesdays and Fridays. Groups are capped at 6 participants and meet outside. 

Where?

Most groups are meeting at Windmill Community Gardens, although other spaces are possible depending on current restrictions and regulations. 

What do groups do?

Groups are involved in a number of activities and support such as:

  • Art Sessions
  • Cooking
  • English Language Learning
  • Socialising and Conversation

It was so good seeing each other again after such a long time. It did me good.

Who is it for?

We are prioritising the most vulnerable and accepting referrals. There is a waiting list and we aim to create opportunities for as many people as possible. The groups are for any asylum seeker or refugee looking for something positive to do and meet other people. The range of activities create many opportunities to connect with our volunteers, staff and participants. 

I was so happy to see the smiles on people's faces
