Key priority area: Social isolation and loneliness
Funding awarded: £5000
This funding is for a weekly conversation cafe on Mental Health. The aim is to provide opportunity for people to come together to connect and build trusted relationships which will help to address loneliness and isolation. This will double up for our primary service users as well as other interested members of the community. The Conversation Café will take place across the communities in Aberdeen; however the primary base will be at Bon Accord. We shall also offer an online option for those who are unable to participate in-person. We shall have a theme for discussion for the month and break it into four parts for the month. For example healthy relationships, anxiety, depression, self-care, self-development, and many other related topics, we will also engage professionals to support effective delivery.
