The speaker at our recent zoom meeting was Fiona Owens from the Abbey Road Centre, a Mental Health and Wellbeing Centre located in Bangor, Gwynedd. Their aim is to support the people in the local community to improve their mental and physical wellbeing through activities such as art, crafts, a reading group, gardening, games, quizzes etc. Fiona explained that the centre began in the early 80s, now operating a drop-in day-care service as well as room hire and tenancies. The centre is funded by the Health Board and Gwynedd Council. At present they only work with adults and within office hours due to funding issues. There is a team of five and they can support up to 70 individuals per week, referred through GPs or self-referred.
Our club have helped paint rooms and provided hanging baskets to support them.
