The group visits the Stafford Centre

Stafford Centre

Today we had the pleasure of visiting the Stafford Centre in Broughton, Edinburgh. It is a resource for adults with mental health issues. The centre opens Mon-Fri 12-4pm. We were really impressed with all the different activities the centre provides. Some of these group activities range from; woodwork, walking, recovery/wellbeing, art and music to name just a few. We were given a guided tour of the lovely building and got to see the woodwork studio, the meeting room, the art room, the music room and in to the basement where the radio station is based. A member of the group was “chuffed” to be able to experience what it is like to sit in a DJ booth! We were able to talk about our group and its aims to hopefully to build up a link for both services which could give people more opportunities. We would like to thank everyone at the Stafford Centre for being so kind and welcoming. It really gives us hope for the future when we see all the positive things people are doing out there to help one another.

Next week the group will be back at Simpson House. while we realise how important it is for the group to do outside visits to promote/raise awareness of the group, we have come to the conclusion that it is best if the group is always at Simpson House on a Thursday, with outside visits being done as an extra on a different day.
