GREEN DAYS VIDEO

We’ve made a little video showing the adventures our Green Days group got up to. From exploring new green spaces in Plymouth to building chairs out of old pallet wood, our group  had the opportunity to work with tools, learn new skills, eat straight from the fire, and even get first refusal on a introduction to bee keeping course. Some plan to go back to the nature reserves for family visits, and others plan to start volunteering with Active Neighbourhoods.

NEW WEEKLY GROUP for 2018 – ‘Bridge the Gap’

This group supports people who would benefit a mixture of activity based sessions (such as gardening, painting, volunteering) and the traditional ‘tea and talk’ group.  The group was set up in response to an increasing demand for a group that combined peer support with group volunteering. This group would really benefit anyone struggling with social isolation or is feeling very stuck in their recovery. The group meet weekly for 1-2 hours. Email [email protected] to find out how you can join this group.
