About the project
Noddfa operates from the Royal British Legion building in Aberaeron.
The service provides group and workshop activities which are specifically designed to help overcome experience of isolation and to support integration within the community. Noddfa aims to support the development of keys skills in areas which will build abilities, confidence, and further independence.
The service aims to promote and develop community connection and integration within the Aberaeron area.
Activity workshops are held regularly and include:
- Guided Dance; Chair Yoga; IT workshops; Art and craft; Singing and Music activities; Tai Chi; Quizzes.
- We offer regular trips out to places of local interest.
The service also aims to promote confidence and communication skills by encouraging members to take part in discussion and recovery groups and self-expression workshops.
We also provide a regular and nutritious communal lunch.
The service provides the availability of walk in. Whilst the service does not provide formal interventions into crisis, service users are provided with the option of contacting the service outside of support times. This would usually be through telephone contact or via email.
We also provide opportunities for volunteering and further peer support. The service recruits volunteers. A culture of providing peer support is also encouraged within the service. Volunteering with the service allows opportunities for service users to play a role within the community and further enhance chances for increased empowerment and independence.
The service is funded by Hywel Dda Health Board and Ceredigion LA
