We’re so pleased to be able to say that our new wellbeing group has started! It’s a monthly group for asylum seeking women, funded by the Lloyds Bank Foundation. The group brings women together to make friendships and reduce loneliness. Each month we’ll share food, have a go at crafts, mindfulness activities and much needed relaxation. It’s a fab way to come together and share our stories and coping techniques, have people to talk to and obviously, have fun!
In our first session we looked at what things we would like to do in the group, women suggested great ideas like going for walks, visiting local museums and trying new arts and crafts activities. In our December session, one of the members is going to teach us how to knit while we come up with a name for our group. It can be such a difficult, stressful and lonely time of year, so it’s lovely that we can all be there for each other while learning new skills. We’ll keep you posted on the kinds of things we get up to!
