York Race Equality Network: The Friendship (Amity) Network
July 27, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFREE
Come along to the Big Lottery funded York Race Equality Network (YREN) regular monthly community get together aimed at people from all communities and ages, with the aim of reducing social isolation and providing a constructive, safe and supportive environment in which people can develop new friendships and build links to the wider York community. Although open to all, the project particularly aims to benefit older BME people and those new to the City of York, including refugees, for whom social exclusion and loneliness are known to be a particular problem.
It provides a place where participants can make social contacts and build new friendships and networks. Activities will be based on participants’ needs and interests, with a strong focus on sharing and valuing the skills and experiences that different individuals bring to the group.
Participants will be encouraged to contribute to shaping the programme through shared planning and activities sessions. We also need volunteers to help out on a regular basis.
Activities are from 2 to 4pm, with YREN representatives there from 12.30. You can also take advantage of YREN’s outreach and partnership work with Your Cafe who provide quality, healthy meals, tea and coffee on a PayAsYouFeel basis.
