Volunteers and service users learning together
Some of the women have been learning to make bracelets and jewellery in the morning drop-in at Justlife, Manchester. It has been a great way for Ruth and Alex to chat to the women coming to Justlife and do something together.
A new volunteer, Marcelina, joined Justlife for the first time this week and it was great to see her get stuck in, meeting and greeting people at the drop-in. She took the opportunity too chat to Gemma* and some of the other female service users who welcomed her and taught her the jewellery making skills that they had learnt over the previous week.
We are hoping to expand the craft activities available in the drop in sessions and uncover more hidden talents and interests of the people using the Manchester centre.
