In order to do this we need to be able to cover the running costs of the Cic

Impact Measures reported by participants: reduced levels of stress and anxiety; improved confidence, self-esteem and resilience; greater sense of control over their lives; improved physical health, increased social interaction and reduced social isolation; new friendships.

Activities
