Macrobert Sunday Socials

The Sunday Social during January and February 2017 is a pilot and it is hoped that it will become a regular drop-in session for adults who would like to socialise in a supported environment with some creative input. The group is especially useful for adults (16+) who benefit from additional support around their mental health.

Aim of the sessions:

  • To create a safe regular social space
  • To address a need for activity on a Sunday
  • To support mental health and wellbeing
  • Providing access to creative opportunity
  • Linking in to Macrobert Arts Centre’s Dance, Film, Theatre, and Visual Art programme
  • For Macrobert Arts Centre to identify advantageous creative outlets for adults with additional support needs.

Sessions will be curated for creative workshops, however will be open for discussion and led by the needs to the group.

Sessions take place on Sundays, 2-4pm on the following dates:

22nd January – Visual Arts

29th January – Visual Arts

5th February – Visual Art/Drama

Social groups, clubs and events– Stirling

Meetings are on a monthly basis and are available in various locations, such as Clydebank, Dundee, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The clubs will give you the opportunity to socialise, meet others, make friends, embrace a variety of activities, have fun and widen your community links.
As part of the group, you will decide what you would like to do. Groups have:

  • gone to the theatre
  • to music arenas and the cinema
  • gone bowling
  • had meals out
  • had barbeques and parties
  • done pub quizzes
  • made arts and crafts
  • explored outdoor pursuits
  • and had many other enjoyable days out.

A number of the groups we run meet up to work on developing social skills in a group setting
using our SocialEyes modules, then practice those skills on the next outing.
