A shared, safe space where it's okay to not be okay
1 in 4 of us will experience difficulties with our mental health.
67% of the UK population have said COVID has had a negative impact on their wellbeing
At Buckskin we want to make a difference, so have started our Refresh Café.
SAFE, SHARED SPACES
Our Refresh Café is a simple, shared space where those who are struggling with their mental health can come and find connection and community- somewhere where they can feel included, and that promote wellbeing.
When you arrive at our Refresh Café, there's a warm welcome, and a cup of something hot - tea, coffee, hot chocolate, whatever you fancy. There's always a slice of something nice to eat too.
On the tables there are a variety of activities - from adult colouring, to puzzle books, to knitting and crochet, to origami, woodwork and beyond. Please feel free to bring your own hobby, and share it with others.
5 WAYS TO WELLBEING
Our space is created around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing - well respected research suggests 5 activities that promote wellbeing.
* Be Active
* Take notice
All of our activities are planned with these 5 ways to wellbeing in mind.
A QUIET SPACE
We always open and end the session with a prayer time. We believe that a quiet time of prayer is deeply good for our wellbeing, and so we invite you to join us in the Prayer Space for a short prayer time. There's no pressure to join in - if you'd rather not that's absolutely fine. If you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, the quiet prayer space is there throughout the session if you need to retreat to somewhere peaceful.
