The monthly social events are at the very heart of the programme and serve two main purposes:
- For the programme co-ordinator and participants to touch base, share progress, good news stories etc, and, most importantly, for the participants to raise any issues that they may need support with outside the session.
- To take part in structured activities in the form of guest motivational speakers (survivors / community activists, leaders etc.) and or an interesting or fun activity (silk screen print, short film / discussion, industry / workplace outings and others).
The social events form the main hub where participants, including mentors and advocates, can come together, share and support their ideas, interests or milestones and enjoy social interaction and a meal in a safe and informal atmosphere.
