Everyone experiences difficult times once in a while.

You may feel alone and isolated. These times can be difficult and even traumatic, Space can offer support.
We support people who are going through relationship difficulties, depression, bereavement, unemployment, mental health problems, loneliness, or any combination of these issues.

 

We can support you by providing:

• A safe place to unwind and think
• Someone who will listen to you in confidence and without judgement
• Information about other organizations
• A chance to meet others
What can you expect from Space?

    quiet area, away from the group if this is what you want
  • Time to enjoy the company of others, have a chat and enjoy company

There is no fixed charge but, if you are able, we do ask you to make a donation

Reducing social isolation is a priority in the Greater Aylesbury local area, which encompasses Aylesbury town and surrounding parishes. The support and care Space provides for people going through difficult times including loneliness, unemployment or bereavement or relationship breakdowns is a much-needed service. Space offers drop-in services, workshops and counselling and has a number of volunteers who work to reduce isolation and help others in the local area. Buckinghamshire County Council values services that support local priorities and address need in the community.

Comments

It provides me with a lot of company.

A place to go when you are feeling alone.

I used to come to Space as a member, seeking support when I was going through a very dark and lonely time. Now life is a lot easier to cope with for me and I enjoy working as a volunteer giving something back and helping others see some light too.

It feels like an air-pocket, a light-house, an oasis. It’s the only space where i feel being loved unconditionally, where my mind and soul are nourished, where i get to know my own humility and others. It is my most effective ‘anti-depressant’ without the harmful side effects. Life without Space? It would feel like being ‘homeless’!
