You are not alone!

You are not alone!

Hi all,

Whilst we’re all staying safe at home it can be a bit of a challenging and isolating time for our families.  We hope you’re all doing as well as possible in these bonkers times, but just wanted to send out a few ways to keep in touch.  We’re sending out email, online and phone details so that we can support each other through this.

Like everyone, Team WarrPAC are safe at home with their young uns, but we’re available to chat to any of our members so that we can be there for each other.  We’ve made the decision to share three of our phone numbers, as well as our email addresses so that you can get in touch. If we don’t happen to be free, leave a message and we’ll get back to you 💚
Jean, our chair, is safe at home with the marvellous Marcus!  If you want to drop her an email it’s jeanchair@warrpac.org, or you can ring her on 07769 971191.
Sharon, our development officer, is enjoying the company of the lovely Maisie and Poppy.  Her email address is devofficer@warrpac.org.  She’s got the main WarrPAC phone – 07581 302172
Here’s our vice-chair Gail and her son Matthew remembering a different life when they could go to bars lol!  We’ll get there again, but until then you’re welcome to email her on gail@warrpac.org or ring 07941 306574.
The rest of Team WarrPAC are also doing their bit, picking up Facebook messages and emails.  We’ve not got all the answers, but can signpost to those that have and are happy to chat and share the load.

Online Chat Sessions

Every Friday we are running two online sessions so that we can all get together and catch up.    The morning session is at the new time of 11am and the evening session at 8pm.  All are welcome to join us.

For our Check In sessions we are using “Zoom Conference Room” which you can get as an app on your phone / tablet, or on a laptop using the link below.

Make sure you check the audio button on your way in to the meeting, so we can hear you.

In Zoom you can click on the video button so that we can get to see your face – or just stay on audio if you prefer.

Here’s the link to join the meetings, or you can use the meeting id and password on your Zoom app
