Following the effects of covid-19 the refresh team will be taking some time to come together, regroup and plan ahead. As a result, we will be operating a revised timetable for the period of 4th - 15th July. We look forward to seeing you all back the week beginning the 18th July – keep an eye out for our new timetable as it develops from then onwards. If you have any questions, give us a call on 01254 682 037

Stay Connected

It is crucial that we find ways to stay connected to our friends and loved ones.  There are plenty of ways that this can be done online and over the phone.

Ways to stay connected

Video Calling

Many people are using video chat to stay in contact with their friends.

FaceTime, Whatsapp and Skype are just some of the video calling platforms that can give you and your loved ones some such needed face-to-face contact.

Apps

Houseparty is a popular face-to-face social networking app which allows you to communicate and have fun- you can even play a variety of games with your friends in the app.

Social Media

Social Media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can be a very powerful space for people to feel connected to others.  

Befriending Services

If these online options are not suitable, befriending services can arrange for a friendly volunteer to call you for a chat.
