Women’s Group -
The Women's Group meets by zoom every fortnight. Sarah, Mandy, Lorraine, Bianca and new member Natasha all have personal experience of an ABI. Sessions include sharing how things are going, pooling ideas to help anyone who's got a problem, and as they all have craft hobbies, getting to see latest progress on art, needlecraft, creative recycling of jars and cards. The group are currently making items for sale at a stall we'll have at Shepton Mallet's Collett Park Day in June.
Peer support and companionship are important, partly because each member of the group truly understands what it means to live with an ABI, and also because sharing stories and ways of getting on with life can be motivating.
The group also believe in learning to love and support yourself, encouraging each other to remember how important self care is.
We're hoping to open up another group soon so if you are familiar enough with zoom to join a meeting online let us know. firstname.lastname@example.org
