Weekly men-only peer support group. Spending time with like-minded men that don’t generally associate with regular activities and are feeling, or are at risk of, loneliness.

Members are encouraged to bring or suggest any ideas or join a table – there is always someone on hand to explore an idea or play a favourite pastime. There is an arts and crafts table that share projects, knowledge, materials and ideas. Plus regular projects for community crafting organised in house. A space for members to use and come together for their own activities. Refreshments are served throughout.
