YW Drop-In Sessions starting

We are pleased to tell you that from 30th March Caroline and Jess will be hosting a weekly Drop-In Session in YWIRC. These sessions will run every Thursday 10am–12pm in the office opposite Welfare for any female detainee. Tea, coffee & biscuits will be available to help provide a relaxed atmosphere for chat, playing games, general socialising. Over time we expect the sessions to evolve to address the needs and preferences of those who come along.

The aim of these sessions is not only to provide another opportunity to check in with those we support already but also to meet those who may be especially isolated or lonely to see if they are interested in having a Befriender. Please encourage those you visit to come along.
