December 2016

Hub news and views

Our longstanding Service Manager, Elizabeth Foulds leaves GNN (formerly Good Neighbours Support Service) in December 2016. Elizabeth worked tirelessly, both as an advisor and as the Service Manger to support and encourage the Network and will be very much missed. A large number of grateful groups sent farewell messages and an event was held in Alton to say goodbye. Elizabeth leaves with all our thanks and very best wishes for the future.

Resource Cafes

Our first Resource Cafes in 2017 concentrate on the Good Neighbours Network Network Ethos. What is so special about the Network and why is it different? Open to all our Network Groups and anyone else who may be interested in what we do and how we do it. January-February dates here.

Fresh Ideas

If any current Network Groups are interested in helping folk with easy or innovative ideas such as a film club or a simple lunch opportunity please get in contact with the Hub at . Support is always available and we may be able to cover the costs too.

Are You Interested?

We are always looking for groups to get involved with local people who have long-term mental health conditions. We are getting more and more requests for help and want to work with local health teams to do this well. Please contact the Hub if you want to be involved, meanwhile please do check out our Dementia Awareness campaign page for some additional information.
