Hey everybody :wave:

On Thursday the 14th of August (7-9pm), we'll be joined by the lovely Kat Cormack who many of you will have met before. These chats are a great chance to give and get support in a slightly more structured way. The idea is to work as a team to help people talk through anything that's on their mind.

Not been to one before? Here's the low-down:

What will it involve?
This chat will be a bit more structured than normal support chat. We'll begin with an introduction and then we'll start going around the room, one by one, giving those who want a chance to share what's on their mind at the moment. Everyone else has the chance to listen and chip in with bits of support/encouragement/reassurance or whatever feels most helpful.

Each person who has something they want to talk about will get some time to explore it with the rest of room, who will be there to listen and provide support.

There will also be a mini-break in the middle to give everyone some time out.


How many people will there be?
There will be a maximum of 10 people, plus a moderator and Kat. That means you'll have to sign up (see below).


What if I just want to support people?
Great! We'd love to have you :)
The sign-up form will ask you whether you want to support people and share something, or just support others. Tick whichever box suits you most.


Where can I sign up?
Fill out a quick registration form here! There are limited spaces, so we'll let you know whether you get a place :)


If you have any questions, feel free to post them below (or via the sign up form).

    Hey Hann and AngelFace,

    It's cool that you're both interested in coming, but a shame that you can't definitely be around at that time.
    We will be running more of these in the future, so keep your eyes peeled :)

    I sign up to so many things, but in the end don't attend, however, if there are still places on the Thursday, and only on the Thursday, could I be put down?

    Gutted I can't make this.
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
