Group activities are a great way to build friendships with peers of similar age and interests. We have male, female as well as mixed groups for ages between 16 – 65. Groups aim to increase participant’s capacity, make new friends and increase social & community participation.
We’re always looking to expand the groups we have on offer so if you have a group you’d like to start or have an idea for a singular group event like going to watch a concert, we’re all ears! If you’re struggling to think of ideas, have a look at our event calendar for some inspiration.
Currently Empowered offers the following group activities;
Each Monday the sewing group meets at the office to complete projects, collect supplies from spotlight, socialise and listen to music. Each year the group prepare for their annual stall where they sell the amazing things they have been working on all year.
Tuesday: Capacity Building
The Tuesday group completes different activities each week. Activities are based around capacity building tasks such as money handling and catching public transport. Whilst building their capacity they also complete fun activities like going to the pool and boxing.
Each Wednesday night the group meets at the office to play different video games on various consoles. Each week the guys take turns on choosing video games as well as choosing the weekly take out!
Every week the group head out to various parks and areas around Newcastle to socialise and take turns in cooking the weekly barbeque. The guys frequently visit Blackbutt, Stockton as well as Warners Bay. So come and enjoy the great surrounds and awesome company.
Fortnightly Saturday: Dinner & Live Music
Every second week we have our biggest turnout at Cardiff Wests for dinner and live music. If you like having a bit of a dance and meeting new people than this group is for you!
