October / November Socials 2019

All these groups and activities are provided for you, to encourage social inclusion and help to stop feeling isolated. Wether you come alone or bring a family member or friend, you will be made very welcome. Please try and join us when you can and make the most of the activities. You will be in a safe and friendly environment and refreshments will be provided.

Follow us on Facebook for updates to all our adult services, including social events.

Please Note: Our social activities are not intended to be a replacement for Peer Support Group Meetings. They are relaxed and informal. As there is no formal agenda or protocol, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, so please refrain from discussing personal issues/problems, and use the Peer Support Meetings for that instead.

All these social activities require a 20p nominal donation. Unless otherwise stated, these sessions are held at Changes Health & Wellbeing, Victoria Court, Booth Street, Stoke, ST4 4AL.

Any donations of equipment are welcome. Should you have any queries, please contact Lorraine on 01782 411433 or 07846 187092.

You don't have to stay for the whole time of these sessions, you can come a little later or leave a little earlier... it really is up to you. This is a safe place to come and be with people who are like-minded and looking to build up their wellness tools.
