Just wanted to say thank you.  Thomas has said, when CAMHS signed him off he felt like his security net was gone.  He said you have made him feel like it could be coming back.  He was listening to you and thinks that you seemed to understand better that other services have.  Again, thank you

Testimonials

After being awarded a grant from Kirklees Council we are now able to offer a more localised yoga sessions, in particular within areas of lower socio-economic backgrounds and areas with high proportions of migrants and asylum seekers. This funding means we are able to continue to offer these sessions, gives residents continuity in their yoga practice and be part of a stable and caring community

It is an activity that I enjoy. I enjoy supporting people, I meet new people & I have made friends. When there are enough leaders there, I don’t have to be there every week.

Having someone who understood anxiety made a difference and that I could do things in my own time.
Introduction from Batley

Testimonials

My life over the previous year had been a lonely one as I’d unfortunately lost my partner. Jo came to visit me at my home. A lovely, positive caring and emphatic lady. I chose to attend a group in Batley called Peer Talk which has literally changed my life. I suffer from anxiety and depression and it’s a group that offers an ear and the chance to talk and have feedback about my life. I’ve made friends and my experience with Community Plus has helped so much. I can’t thank Jo enough

It was like getting out of dark towards light. Honestly speaking, I was so lucky to be referred to community plus, and meeting with a lady like Jaime who has enlightened my mind and life.
