Developing Trust and Community, and a Feeling of Support


The sharing and depth of sharing at the beginning and end of each workshop session and in the private face book group supported the trust, sense of community and peer support was a central feature of the project’s success:

“I’ve swapped over some of my medication in the last couple of weeks so I’ve been up and down. Yeah, and which is why I posted yesterday. I think it was saying, you know, “is anyone else anxious because I’m finding I’m getting extremely anxious over the smallest things like making lunches for the kids. Doing this with you guys is really exciting for me and it’s given me something to look forward to and I’m doing something for myself, which I really need to do. Yeah, after being a mum for 10 years, I think I’ve forgotten who I am. So this is good.”
