Getting people moving is an important part of Safe-Space activities. We’ve had circuits, yoga, Zumba, dance and even hula-hopping. You’ll be having so much fun you won’t even realise you’re working out!

Cooking and making food is fun and the best part is you get to eat what you create at the end. From smoothies and stir-frys to meatballs and chilli. The receipes we show you how to make are easy, healthy and tasty.

All of the activities on Safe-Space have been designed to help you feel good. However, sometimes our minds and emotions need a little bit of extra-special care. Mindfulness or simply connecting with friends online can all help you to feel better.

Safe-Space art sessions help you to express yourself whilst creating and making. From making art with materials found in nature to showing how you feel through dance. Art is a way to learn more about yourself as you make wonderful creations.

Safe Space helped me keep connected with people I wasn’t seeing in real life.

I like Safe-Space because some of the activities keep you fit and some of them make you want to dance. At the beginning of lockdown I was devastated and a little bit angry because I didn’t get to see anyone.We had to stay inside all the time and not go out. I was able to go out with my dog but I was afraid and didn’t do it till May. I did lots of the activities—cooking, mindfulness, arts, creative dance, stamina workshops, drumming, yoga—all of it! I was buddied up with Nina and it helped a lot, we zoomed and chatted, asking questions and finding out what she was doing every day. It made me feel confident and I made her laugh which feels good. She is now my friend. I’d tell people to give it a try because if you haven’t done it before you won’t know if you like it until you try it. Do your best, it doesn’t matter if you make a mistake you can just do it again until you get it right. There are lots of people to help you succeed.
