Can you help at the Arran Well-Being cafes? Arran Well-Being CIC are looking for volunteers:
Arran Well-Being CIC run the Well-Being cafes in Lamlash, Brodick and Shiskine and our next Cafe will open in Corrie and Sannox Village Hall on Monday 14th February from 2.00 to 4.00pm.
Do you know someone who would enjoy coming along for coffee and cake as well as good company and some fun and laughter? Please contact Jennie at email@example.com and if you would like to volunteer or train to become a Cafe Co-ordinator please give us a ring on 07983 448511.
The Cafes are for people who have had a diagnosis of dementia and their Care Partner as well as people who have felt lonely and isolated over the past couple of years with the onset of Covid-19.
We see the Cafes as providing the opportunity for the development of social interactions, helping create a kind of safety net in a world of uncertainty. The need for inclusion is a natural part of society and even more so in the past couple of years. Being part of a community through the Cafes helps individuals to feel wanted and recognised, providing support to each other.
The Cafes provide the opportunity for music, singing, exercise, reminiscence and horticulture as well as arts and craft with experienced volunteers/therapists who can also guide people in the right direction for further support.
