This is an all ability walking group that will give you opportunity to get out and about and start to meet others again. It is a fantastic way for you to get some fresh air, meet others, build your confidence…and you may even find interesting places that you didn’t know existed! Walks will initially be short in length, starting from Halifax town centre and very gradually increase in length, dependent on needs and interests. All walks will adhere to current safety precautions and guidelines – but that won’t stop us having some fun along the way.
Starts: Thursday 20 May 11am – 12:30pm for 6 weeks
Only the Lonely
Feelings of loneliness and social isolation are unfortunately all too common in our communities and indeed across the world. The impact of these can have a real detrimental impact on the people it affects so this three week course aims to help learners combat feelings of loneliness and to build and develop strong social connections. Over MS Teams we will discuss the difference between feeling lonely and being socially isolated, will learn strategies to enable us to feel content in our own company and create an individual plan to help keep us socially connected. All learners will receive a printed workbook in the post to work through as well as having the option to attend the three MS Team sessions.
Starts: Tuesday 8 June 10.30-11.45am
