The women at our Rainbow Hearts group were delighted to welcome back Kiran from Touchstone last week. We learned some chair-based exercises that we can also do in the comfort of our own home and lots of laughs were had when we played games to get the blood pumping. Thanks Kiran!
Lots of our groups broke up for the summer this week and we’ve had some really lively sessions. Some of our other groups had interesting, and often very lively, discussions on healthy vs unhealthy relationships (if it’s not ok for your partner to check your phone, is it really ok for you to check his??). One of our groups started to look at the impact of domestic abuse on our wider friends and family. This session followed a set of sessions covering the impact of domestic abuse on us and the impact on children of all ages. We talked about how domestic abuse can have a ‘ripple effect’ throughout families and communities. A difficult subject but as usual, we all left feeling really positive about what we’d shared and how far we’ve come.
The first school programme for The Key came to an end with some fantastic feedback (we’ll post about that later), we’re already in the process of speaking to schools about where our next programme will be in September. No slowing down in WHM towers! Happy summer hols!
Two more women completed the Feel Good course this week! The project, which is run in partnership with People In Action, is for women with learning disabilities and looks at healthy bodies and healthy relationships.
The 6-week course starts regularly throughout the year so please get in touch if you know anyone who would like to come along or if you would like more information.
As we’re in the process of updating our website, we thought it would be a good idea to start a blog so we can keep everyone updated on our work. This is where you’ll find any good news we’ve had, updates on our projects and funding, any changes to the organisation and anything else we can think of!
