The group decides what they would like the session to include and then goes about making it happen! Previous activities have included: drumming workshops, 'researching your family tree', accessible sports and creative writing.

    All sessions are free to attend and transport is usually covered also. If you’d like to find out more, come along to one of the sessions, and / or train as a volunteer, please contact the team on 0117 947 9942 or emailing peersupport@wecil.co.uk
