We will be linking to Mental Health Awareness Week 2022. We will come together in person, to share ideas and create in stitch, how we can reduce loneliness and encourage connection with people and our community. We will be making sensory keyrings with messages of support and understanding that reach out to people. The finished keyrings can be given out as gifts, as everyday reminders of the need to connect with each other.
Our accompanying resource will support you to continue making in your home setting.
