Launching The Men’s Wheel
Georgie Brown, who currently helps facilitate a women’s group called Torbay Women’s Circle alongside Sally Renshaw at Shekinah Endeavour House, says they’ve been overwhelmed by the number of women who have attended and need help with anything from drug and alcohol addictions to housing, job or education needs.
‘We welcome women from all backgrounds and offer a safe space – we listen, encourage, motivate, support and promote personal growth and development,’ Georgie tells us. ‘We’ve successfully helped women back into work or training. It’s been a pleasure working and achieving some of these women’s goals and dreams.’
Now, she adds, ‘We’ve had so many of the women’s partners asking why there isn’t anything for men so we have found the perfect person who will facilitate this group with help from me and Sally. The new ‘Men’s Wheel’ will have a similar aim as the women’s group.’
Dave Pattie will facilitate this new community group at Shekinah Endeavour House in Torquay, running every other Wednesday from 2 – 4 pm. ‘We want the group to be run by the men that attend,’ Georgie says, ‘ so whatever it is they feel they can benefit from is what we will source.’
The new group will be launched on Wednesday September 12th when there will be a variety of other community groups attending, too, so this will also be a really good opportunity to meet up and network, with refreshments provided for anyone attending.
