'Central Springboard will be re-opening for regular weekly 90 minute in-person sessions on Wednesday 8th September from 1pm. Due to Covid-19 we're strictly limiting attendance to four (plus two group facilitators) and are booking attendees in blocks of six sessions. 

We will be maintaining our weekly online Zoom sessions (Wednesday 2-3.45pm) for the time being too to ensure that as many people as possible can attend.

If interested in either in-person Springboard or Zoom sessions, please contacted the project coordinator, Teresa at [email protected] for further information or to book. Booking will be essential as we have limited space and will be maintaining some social distancing.

During the lockdown we kept in touch with Springboard users via a weekly newsletter which you can still access here

In addition, we recently launched our Springboard Scribbler Project, a pen pal scheme aimed at keeping people connected and helping people express how they are feeling or to ask any questions about their wellbeing and best to cope.

We know that a lot of people attend our groups because they are lonely and lack confidence and we know that some will be finding the physical and emotional isolation very difficult to manage.  We want to encourage anyone that's feeling lonely and cut off to get in touch. Our Scribbler can help answer your questions, can advise on services and just be there to let you know that you are not alone and we do want to hear from you.
