Creating a community of understanding and a safe place for you to learn, grow, make friends and practise your social abilities...
“I'm so glad I found you. It's so nice to know that others are going through similar things. What I like most is being able to talk to others who have similar issues, learning how to overcome those using different techniques to control anxiety. It's been a great way of making new friends with similar stories. You are an inspiration.”
Bringing like-minded people together in a space where it's ok to talk and it's ok to be quiet too.
This is a calm space for gently connecting with people who have similar stories with no pressure to speak up or join in; you’re free to go at your own pace.
“I met some lovely people tonight and surprised myself by speaking out to the whole group! You are awesome. Thank you for this opportunity.”
We're currently running regular Quiet Connections groups in:
Every Thursday at the Donald Thomas Centre
Every third Thursday of the month at Huddle Cafe
Every second Monday of the month at Cafe Chaos
“I like the openness of the group and the way they greeted me when I first started a few months ago. They continue to show an interest and make me feel welcome.”
“The best bit is that there’s no pressure to be anyone but yourself. Other people can relate to how hard and stressful it can be. It’s really good; a chilled atmosphere and no pressure to participate”
