Southcare and Befriend are offering free community workshops to help you better connect with your community, with the goal of bringing your ideas and skills to life to help others.  

These workshops are perfect if you want to host a group, or organise gatherings over a common interest or skill and you will walk away feeling empowered and confident to lead and connect with your community in a fun and safe way. 

Maybe you’ve wanted to run a book club, craft group, or teach others singing, chess or anything really… if so, these workshops are for you! 

Join us for one or all of the following to get started:
