What is the size of the group?

This depends as it is a drop in. We have about 8 regular people. Sometimes a person will drop in once or twice, get what they need and move on. Some people come every month.

Who is the group for?

The group is for anyone with a long-term health condition, impairment and/or disability. It is a pan-disability group, including physical, sensory, learning disability, mental health, neuro-diverse. The group is deliberately informal and relaxed as many people have a lot of structured hospital / DWP appointments so this is a space to just “be”.

Do I need to get a referral?

No, you can just drop in, although happy for professionals to email about someone for us to contact to encourage them to try out the group, with their permission of course.

Why would I want to come?

To connect people more with others and the wider local community; The aim is for you to have a safe, welcoming space for to be able to make friends, find out about activities and events happening in the borough, signposting to other services, get confidential advice and information.

What happens at the Drop In?

There are always two workers at the sessions. We have general protocols around respecting everyone’s opinion, listening to others. If someone has an advice casework issue, we would arrange a supported referral. We have up to date information about events and activities in the area and opportunities to arrange to go out together.
