Christmas Social resources A lot of people find the holiday period to be particularly challenging. We work with the older population of the city and many do h=not have families or are isolated by distance or physical illness which prevents them from spending time with loved ones. The real and perceived pressures of attending social events and having to deal with the pressure of providing for families and the additional financial burden this can result in. We are going to be holding a number of social events to try and bring people together so they can share in the festivities in a a safe and welcoming space with people who appreciate what they may be going through and can share their own experiences and how they managed to cope. You can help by donating to our fund.
