Support Groups

Group work can help to alleviate isolation and disempowerment. There is a sense of relief in knowing that others share your experience and do not judge or blame you, but instead support and empathise with your situation

The Witches Project! It’s an interesting name for a project! This is a short term intervention available to High Schools across Tayside. We work with groups of 8 – 12 females and investigate local history, looking particularly at how women are perceived and treated. The group then relate this to the modern day perceptions, health, alcohol abuse and other topics that the group feel are important to learn more about. The project concludes with a very appropriate trip to The Edinburgh Dungeon’s witchcraft museum!
