Chronic Pain Groups

Do you suffer from Chronic Pain? Join our Facebook Chronic Pain Support Group

We have taken our CP support group online. Just because we can't meet in person does not mean that we can't 'meet' online.

Please join us here for our private group... https://www.facebook.com/groups/205262984121181/

 


Free Seated Exercise

Suitable for people with mobility issues, those suffering with chronic pain and/or mental health conditions and other disabilities. Also for people who during lock down caused by the Coronavirus want structure in their lives and things to look forward to.

Benefits include improved pain management, mental clarity & reduced stress.

To join us for our weekly seated yoga sessions delivered live by our yoga teacher, and enjoyed from the comfort of your own house, please email me for the registration link.

The live sessions will take place Wednesdays at 12 noon for 40 minutes.

Films to Schools

Our team of tutors and volunteers are visiting the children in keystage 2 in local schools to help the children learn more about disability.
Sessions have been delivered to key stage 2 children in a number of schools, including, Bramley School, Castle Hill, Tadley School, North Waltham, Great Binfields Primary, Chiltern Primary, Oakridge, Kings Furlong, Kempshott, Burnham Copse and Merton Juniors.
We will be visiting The Priory and Cliddesden Primary very soon.

Films to Cub Scouts

We have recently embarked on a new project - to take our disability awareness project into local Cub Scouts packs, the photo above shows the children at the Hatch Warren Cherokee Cubs eargerly awating the lesson. We received the following quote from the Leader "Thank you for coming to Cubs tonight. Your presentation will definitely have given the Cubs an understanding and appreciation of a variety of different disabilities."
