The Connect Project
Creativity is a great motivator because it makes people interested in what they are doing. Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Creativity gives the possibility of some sort of achievement to everyone. Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.
[Edward de Bono]
Our connect project was born to do just that - to help people connect with others.. and with themselves.
We offer clubs for men, women and clubs which are open to all. Whether you want to just sit and chat with others or if you would like to have a chance at getting creative.
A weekly get together for just men. There's a range of activities on offer, the choice of which is led by the men's club users.
Everyone is welcome to drop in for tea, coffee and biscuits, read the papers or a friendly chat with the team. We also offer an optional weekly craft activity for those who'd like to participate.
A weekly get together for women only. There are different activities each week, the choice of which is guided by users of the women's club.
A different meaningful craft activity every week for complete beginners to experienced crafters, all are welcome.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says
to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
Loneliness doesn't always come from being alone.
You don't have to live alone to feel lonely, sometimes people can have lots of family and friends and yet still feel a sense of loneliness. We can help you find out why you feel this way and help you find your way back to fulfilling relationships.
Social connection is such a basic feature
of human experience that when we are deprived of it, we suffer.
