Starting Saturday 7th December (1pm – 4pm) 2019; a new support group Brainstormz! is opening in The Net for persons just like you. There will be: 

  • Refreshments 
  • Crafting 
  • Facilities for younger persons 
  • Occasional Guest Speakers 
  • Arranged trips to seminars where relevant

BRAINSTORMZ! is led by WALT volunteer, Sue Bulpin, and welcomes people with all neurological conditions from Functional Neurological Disorder to Fibromyalgia and more.

We aim to provide an empathetic forum for the exchange of good practice ideas, details of access to facilities both locally and further afield. A general information exchange provision will be available, where attendees can receive and provide information as they find the information useful. 

Each session will cost £2 per person {£1 for under 16s}. This is to cover the session fees, tea or coffee and biscuits. Those who bake are always welcome, especially if they bring cakes! 

For information, contact Sue on 01634 319633 at the Net or via email volunteer@waltcic.org.uk

We’re delighted to offer another support service to our local residents.

With effect from Thursday, October 5, we will be joined by a counsellor from Swale Action To End Domestic Abuse, now branching out into Medway.

Domestic abuse is more than just physical abuse – if you are in fear, not able to control your finances or stopped from seeing your friends, this could be abuse.  SATEDA are here to help you on Thursday’s 12pm till 1pm. No appointment needed.

Access on the third Thursday in the month is via the volunteers’ entrance at the back of the Hub in Teasel Road but at all other times, the front space is accessible.

If you require further support or to book an appointment, please visit their website here.
