This is a weekly social group via Zoom, every Wednesday from 11am to 12 noon. They are hosted by a member of our team, where you can meet others with an acquired brain injury (ABI). There is the opportunity to take part in small group discussions about the impact of ABI on everyday life, share experiences and strategies, and also have some fun playing Pictionary or completing a crossword while enjoying a cuppa. Bring your own drink and join the group. Take part as much, or as little as you wish. Everyone welcome.
We have found that some people with ABI like to talk to others, who are in the same situation, or who have progressed further. Those who are further on are able to offer peer support, they are “experts by experience”. This offers the chance to talk about things that have helped them, and also things that have hindered. At every Coffee Morning, there will be a member of staff and sometimes an experienced volunteer who will join in with the conversations.
For those, who are not looking for a conversation, as such there is the opportunity to be part of a break out group and play Pictionary or Crossword on line. It's not a problem if you have never played Pictionary. We draw the picture online slowly and you guess what it is. If you then wish to learn how to draw a picture, we can teach you (using annotate). This might sound scary, but it is really easy once we talk you through it and it’s great fun. If crosswords are you thing, then let us know in advance and we will email the weekly crossword to you, to download and print (you will need a pen). Then as a group we work on the crosswords, giving clues to each other, but not the answers (we encourage your grey cells to work hard). Both sessions are full of conversation and laughter.
Coffee mornings are free to attend, however, we would encourage you to join Friends of Headway Surrey, as your contribution of £3 a month or £36 per year helps us to provide this service.
