We provide a programme of groups throughout the week that look to support individuals, help establish new friendships, provide an opportunity for further help and advice and to develop new skills.
After school drop in for young people
The drop in is open to young people aged 11-16. It provides a place to come and relax, to learn new skills as well as accessing any support if needed. It is run by our Youth Workers, Naomi and Brigitte.
Open to anyone who wants to come and enjoy a bite to eat and meet new people. Hosted by YFM’s Family Worker there will be advice and support on hand if needed. No need to book – just turn up. There is no charge but any donations are welcome.
An opportunity for parents to meet together, chat and have coffee and cake. It’s an informal support network, with our Family Workers on hand to give advice if needed. The emphasis is on having fun, taking time out and learning new skills. This session is open to any parent. A free creche is available for young children.
Those who attend Tides share the common experience relating to depression and anxiety. It is expected that anything that is talked about is confidential and everyone will be treated equally. Tides provides a space where there is mutual respect and support and where acceptance and encouragement are a matter of course.
Autism & ADHD
Second Monday of every month 7.30pm-9.30pm
This group aims to support those who live with Autism and ADHD. This could be parents, carers and grandparents of children with Autism and ADHD. It could be adults who have experienced growing up with Autism or ADHD. There is opportunity to meet, chat, support each other as well as finding out information.
The Belong group for adults provides a support network and a place for people to be themselves. It is informal and relaxed and looks at the Christian Faith and what that means.
