Not everyone who needs The Fed’s help requires our support on an individual basis. The best support for some people comes from meeting others at one of our regular group sessions or other activities
Group sessions put you in touch with people who are likely to understand the challenges you face in life. Meeting others in similar circumstances can help you feel less isolated with whatever issues you are dealing with.
Staff at The Fed have also observed lasting friendships blossom between people who attend our groups. This is an added dimension which helps to enrich people’s lives – both young and old.
Our groups are generally split into adults only groups and groups for children and young people.
The group sessions usually take place in one of two locations at Heathlands Village – our Children’s Centre or our Purple Room Community Centre.
Some groups allow you to turn up unannounced. Others require you to book a place or let us know in advance if you’re going to be attending.
