• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

A message from our CEO

Life as we know it has changed and we are all having to adjust to the uncertainties that surround us, not least our loved ones who need support, who know things have changed, but many can’t work out the what or why.

However, what we are seeing and hearing is how our loved ones have shown great resilience and coping strategies that will help them to get through this difficult time.

“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you’ve lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that’s good.” Elizabeth Edwards

At My Life we have decided to go with the positive and have been using this opportunity to help create more opportunities, spaces and resources for our members and students for when they return.

The weather has been very kind and this has enabled us to get our green fingers out at our Standish site and start to expand our growing knowledge. It has enabled us to create a mass of new resources at Leigh, we have had time to build stronger connections with families and most importantly it has enabled us to do the small things that make a big difference to people we know and those out there in our community.

We are welcoming volunteers on the Standish site, which is deemed an acceptable activity, whilst respecting social distancing, and we are also welcoming volunteers who would like to do things at home such as making resources, sewing soft furnishings and more. If you would like to volunteer please let us know by emailing info@my-life.org.uk.

The next few weeks and months will no doubt be tough and as a charity we are doing everything we can to keep strong and keep helping everyone who needs us.

Remember, we are still open and if you would like to discuss how we can support, or provide opportunities whilst respecting the government guidance please don’t hesitate to call us. Please do get in touch if you think we can help with anything. Our lines are open during office hours, call us on 01257 472900.

Caroline Tomlinson, CEO, My Life
