I’m a forty-something MS sufferer in a motorised wheelchair.  Coming to Space is like finding another family.  Since my son has turned 19, I have felt that I don’t have a role.  Here at Space we can share common problems.  I feel needed again.  People contact you if you’re not here.  I have a purpose.  Life’s lonely at home.  Here I find peace and space to think.  Coming has given me confidence; I realise I’m not alone.  I am one of millions who have problems.  I’m pleased I made the initial step to come in.

A few years ago I wasn’t leaving the house.  I’m lonely on my own.  At Space I’m able to discuss my difficulties in private.  Coming to the drop-ins has also helped my socialising skills.  I’ve enjoyed coming to the drop-ins so far.  I’d be lost without the service.  It has added more routine to my life.

The sessions have certainly made a big difference to my outlook on life and have enabled me to begin to forget the pain of the past and to begin to put things into perspective and to realise that the hurt on me and others can be alleviated. The counsellor’s patience and suggestions have been of tremendous benefit to me in times of stress.

Space is somewhere to go and helps me get out. I come with my friend who, without Space would not leave her house at all. We are both isolated and would only have each other if it wasn’t for Space. We have made lots of friends here who we also meet for coffee outside of the groups.
There are not many places to go on a Sunday, so having a drop-in Sunday afternoon is great.

 

Testimonials

Space provides a vital source of support to Aylesbury in a time of much need in our town. (past Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr. Ranjula Takodra)

The Space project does very valuable work within the local community, providing support to many vulnerable people going through hard times for a variety of reasons. The one to one counselling sessions, weekly group drop ins and workshops run by Space help to give their users back a sense of self belief and the ability to work through their problems. (David Lidington, MP for Aylesbury)

Space is an excellent service, very valuable and much needed. It helped to have someone caring to talk to.

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’!
