Be Me Project February Update

posted 25 Feb 2021, 04:49 by Crossways Dorking

Thank you for reading our news for the start of 2021

We are delighted to be chosen to be a mission partner with St George's Church in Ashtead.  We are so grateful to them for supporting us. You can hear a small clip of an interview that Sue gave below - the full version can be found on SGSG Ashtead Youtube channel. 

 

 

Let's Chat is a brand new resource that we have been working on which includes 100 questions about life's issues. The purpose of the questions is to guide deep and meaningful conversations to build confidence and improve mental wellbeing.  
 

There are 14 different topics to discuss; including

  • healthy relationships,
  • dangers of social media,
  • coping with emotions.

Our first time using them is going to be in a Cafe in Brighton where we are inviting women who live in hostels to join us and have a free cuppa. Thank you to Clarion Futures who are funding this exciting project which launches this coming month. 

 

 

What is happening in Kent...

Thank you to Tonbridge Baptist Church who has funded us to run the 'Who Am I?' course with ladies who live in a Christian hostel.  We are thrilled to be partnering with both the Church and the hostel in supporting these young women. We are continuing to work alongside the GP surgery in Snodland running our courses for struggling young people through our online provision. 

Clarion has generously purchased 100 'Who Am I?' books which will be sent to some of the most vulnerable ladies, including 60 in hostels and 40 who are struggling in the community.  After lockdown, we're excited to be working more closely with some of these ladies and offering further support.

 

In Surrey, we have been working alongside Social Prescribers (in GP surgeries) and schools and have had many referrals to our online support for young people and women in the communities that we live in.  We have 12 people that are accessing this support at present and we have a waiting list for our person-to-person courses after lockdown.  

 

We are looking for...

An experienced treasurer to join our board of trustees!

We were thrilled to hear our Government's announcement that students are returning to schools on the 8th March and the apparent increased awareness of the need to support those with poor mental health.  As a team, we can't wait to help all those we come in contact with.

 

 

The Be Me Team
