Informal and practical sessions where you learn to use and access the internet, get to grips with Office or Google’s’ endless cute kitten pictures! If you are new to computers our helpful facilitators and volunteers will guide you through the basics or help you fathom out your tablet or Kindle. You can also use our computer classes to access welfare rights information and also find supportive organisations and mental health support groups.
Creative activities such as art and craft have long been recognised as playing a major therapeutic role in the management of mental health wellbeing, and a source of meaningful activity for many people. Here at NFOW we offer people the opportunity to explore their creative side in a relaxed and supportive environment. We have a large range of art and craft materials available for people to experiment with, and while we do not have a formal tutor, our volunteers and group members are always willing to share their skills and experience. We are open to all comers, regardless of experience!
Our major creative project involves producing unique pieces and bespoke commissions in illuminated frames. This social enterprise project will be a source of income allowing our services to expand..
If you’re at a bit of a loose end or in need some company, pop along to our drop in session. Whether you want to sit quietly with a coffee and a Sudoku puzzle, meet up with friends or sit and chat with the crafters (and maybe have a go yourself!), the choice is yours. Just don’t sit at home feeling alone with nowhere to go.
Therefore our activities have a sound practical and proven role in managing wellbeing
