An event was held to say thank you to all supporters of the community garden. Sean, who is supported by mirus in Maesteg, and also volunteers in the garden, was there to represent mirus.
Aberystwyth is a thriving community and we are working creatively to strengthen our existing relationships and build stronger links with other local people, organisations and businesses.
We know through feedback from the people we support, that many love dogs.
To help us launch our first dog walking session we received funding from Mind’s Side by Side Cymru project, which offers small grants to promote peer support in the community. Branded T-shirts and flyers have made the group recognisable in the community, and have encouraged people to find out more and join the group.
The group is already having a positive impact on the lives of people we support, by offering them opportunities to do the things they love and socialise with new people they feel more empowered, fulfilled and active.
