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 staff and volunteers we are running five online Trans and Questioning Support groups and a Partners Support Group; welcomed five new group members; provided 40 hours of one-to-one counselling; welcomed 13 new counselling clients; given an additional 26 hours a week in one-to-one support like phone calls and quick friendly chats; started up two coffee mornings – one for volunteers and one for any and all T&Q group members; and provided 31 hours of counselling supervision.
If you want to join a group, or get involved with volunteering or fundraising then drop us a line. You can contact us by calling 07823 504306 between 9:30am and 3pm Monday to Friday or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for Online Group facilitators, One-to-One keyworkers and people who want to come and support the coffee mornings. Are you frustrated with only looking at your own four walls, fancy getting outside whilst staying inside? Get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator Sheila and find out more.
