*update – June 2021*
A return to in-person peer support, in conjunction with Crossreach:
Our new face-to-face group starts Monday the 14th of June 2021 at 10.30.
If you’d like to join us, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our services are very much drop in, but we need an idea of numbers to keep our groups covid-compliant.
This group will be running on Mondays in term-time at Crossreach, Simpson House, 52 Queen Street, Edinburgh.
Online Groups (in response to Covid-19/lockdown):
There are two sessions weekly; Monday evening from 8-9pm and Friday
Please email us on email@example.com to access the meeting links.
As Zoom is a video participation app, it’s nicer to have video on so we can see who we are talking to as a group. We can also see if someone gets really upset so we can support you further, but if you really don’t feel comfortable then please do turn it off.
24 hours notice
Please can you confirm your attendance each week 24 hours before the session so we can ensure our volunteers are prepared for you joining us. We will provide you with the Zoom meeting link.
We are awaiting an in-person return for the following two groups:
We meet every Monday night from 7.30pm-9pm.
This group is run by Cat, Kelly, Ruth, Laura and Jennifer on a rota basis and is open to adults and babes in arms.
Lifecare Centre, Stockbridge, 2 Cheyne Street, EH4 1JB
