It looks like the world is starting to turn again, with some hope coming back along with the sunshine. How did you spend your weekend? Did you get out to meet someone for the first time in months or are you still a homebody? I ventured out to see my grandma for the first time since the start of March, it was simply lovely to connect with her again after only having WhatsApp, her hair the longest it has been since she operated searchlights in North London in WWII she had reached the point where she didn’t want to do

Living in a virtual world

Morning all, another week in the house begins, after another weekend of dancing in the living room and so I thought it was about time I started talking about all the ways that Chrysalis has developed over the last few weeks.

Stand ready for some stats

Chrysalis exists to break down the barriers of isolation, to enable people to make connections, to feel free to be authentic and to explore what that authenticity means. Since the 18th March we have been working on how to bring our group members all the benefits of Chrysalis into their virtual worlds.

Thanks to all our incredible
