Social Groups

 

Lion King Quilt

Currently we have two active social groups:

All are welcome to these groups, and you can indicate your intent to come along by booking a spot via our eventbrite page, or by emailing us via the contact us form. We’ll look forward to meeting you.

 

Why sewing?

 

Sewing has a rich heritage of fellowship and social support, and has been proven to be beneficial to survivors of trauma and those experiencing anxiety and depressive disorders. It can activate the ‘relaxation response,’ a counterpoint to the heightened state of alertness associated with stress related conditions. Sewing can also help people to relax in potentially uncomfortable social situations, and create a perfect environment for personal conversations.

 

Referrals are welcome

 

We often work in partnership on our programmes and projects, with other organisations and specialists such as occupational therapists, psychologists, support workers, and outreach workers. We offer a holistic, healthy and sustainable model of support that complements existing provision and improves individual and collective wellbeing.

Whilst open to all, our social groups are enabled by volunteers, grants, and occasionally contract support, and tend to identify and respond to a need.
