PEER SUPPORT GROUP

In collaboration with the Racial Equality Council and the Asylum Seekers and Refugees Mental Health Team in Plymouth, we have formed peer support groups for men and women to help them:

  • Build community and overcome isolation
  • Manage the day to day stress through learning about certain body exercises, breathing techniques, food impact and creating a lifestyle and investing in a mindset that can make life a bit easier.
  • Connect with a vision for their future
  • Expand their approach to life beyond their life limitations
  • Set achievable goals to keep them motivated
  • Find volunteering opportunities where they can do things to nourishes their being
  • Manage financial difficulties

The groups run fortnightly at Sherwell Church in Plymouth.

If you are a Plymouth resident BME person and interested in joining any of these groups please contact us on info@embracingrefugees.org
