Why Roosa?

Although we are a domestic abuse organization our work is changing and diversifying to better meet the needs of women in Orkney.  One of our aims is to be able to provide more groups and social activities for women that are not related to domestic abuse.  Our big aim is to eventually create a women’s centre which will be a fun, friendly place offering a wide variety of activities.

Meanwhile . . . we recently received some surprise funding and listening to feedback from a recent survey we carried out the idea for Roosa grew.

Women we work with have told us that they would like a place to go where they could have a free cup of tea (or coffee 😊), chat to people, have a go at some fun activities and maybe learn something new.

They also told us how lonely and isolating life was during lockdown times.

We decided to use all the ideas we have been given to run a 10 week group for women with somewhere to meet friends, make new friends, have a cup of tea and try a fun activity.

Fun quiz and bingo ,gentle yoga, mini meditation and relaxation, pamper session, phone photography    arty/crafty activities …confidence growing, making bath bombs and hand creams.
