Making the first step can be really hard, but having some support can help.

We’re involved in several ‘Springboards’ across the city. These are sessions where you can get a cup of tea and talk to other people in a similar situation. Staff and trained volunteers are available to help you feel welcome and there are activities you can get involved in. Click here for further details

We also run a men's support group (Mankind) on a Wednesday afternoon between 2.00 - 4.00. The sessions are relaxed and informal and facilitated by a trained volunteer. There is no need to book and you can call in as necessary to get support and advice from people who have similar experiences.

We also run an informal Friday social group (Friendly Fridays) which is open to all and runs from 1.00 - 3.00 every week. The group is facilitated by staff and volunteers and provides a safe and supportive space for people who are looking to build confidence and socialise more.

You can find out more about these groups on our Peer Support page
