Creative Card Making

Once again, a great hands on activity session, designing and creating hand made cards. It became a very competitive session as we had 2 teams competing to see which team could produce the most cards. We took direction from Carol one of our volunteers who kindly prepared the materials prior to the session.

Will Writing

Will Writing Image 1

A very interesting and informative session on why we should all have a Will. Claire from Clarke Muirs very kindly gave us her valuable time to give an informal talk followed by 1 to 1 brief sessions to give members of the community the opportunity to discuss their individual questions. Claire kindly left information on the subject, please feel free to contact us for further information. We are delighted that so many people have taken the opportunity to learn more about the important topic.

North East Counselling Services

Tim explained why the service began and who it supports. We are proud to work in partnership with the service which has had clear benefits for our members who use their 1 to 1 service.

We were interested and delighted to learn from a couple of our members who discussed how the 1 to 1 support has made a huge difference to their positive well-being.

We had 16 people attend the session from across Gateshead who now are aware of the service and how to access them.
