Earlier this year Wellbeing Officer at Witton Lodge Community Association, Rebecca Craddock, launched a new support group in partnership with Oikos Church.
Meeting every Thursday at the Oikos Café in Erdington Hight Street, the group aims to encourage people to set and reach healthy, productive lifestyle goals.
With discussion focussed on topics like physical and mental health, food and diet and managing stress and anxiety, the group is succeeding in connecting people through shared experience.
To celebrate the friendships that have formed since the group launched in May, Witton Lodge organised a meal out for everyone at the Horse and Jockey pub in Sutton Coldfield.
During the get together, one of the clients commented: “It’s a lovely group, everyone is so supportive and we have all become good friends It has really helped me to stop feeling so low.”
The group is free to join and open to anyone who lives in North Birmingham. For more details please call Rebecca on 0121 382 1930 or email: Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org
