Amount awarded: £500
To provide five pottery workshops in Stonehaven for women experiencing mental health and emotional difficulties. Many are socially isolated and lack confidence and a number have physical and mobility problems. The women find that the opportunity to share an activity, learn a new skill and benefit from the conversation and support the group offers improves their mental health and confidence. The group provides the opportunity for women of all generations to form sustainable relationships that improve not only their own quality of life but the quality of the relationships they have with their families and the local community. The grant will cover the costs of materials and hire of hall for 5 weeks.
