Kindfulness coffee call back club

Building emotional resilience one pot of tea at a time…

Resilience, explains Prof Richard Williams, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the University of South Wales, comes from the Latin resilio, which means to jump (or bounce) back. Now, emotional resilience measures our ability to cope with or adapt to stressful situations or crises – be this a hurricane in Kathmandu or an A-level exam in Kingston. Indeed, says Prof Williams, the two situations aren’t so different – rather, they’re on a “spectrum of adversity”.


World Health Organisation.

Mr. P calls for community-based psychosocial interventions for anyone facing emotional or social distress. “Psychiatric interventions are not needed in many cases and the appropriate care and support can be provided by general care workers, such as family doctors, community nurses and home visitors. - See more at: https://goo.gl/Zmwyw7

We are a not for profit community run cafe in Bootle in Liverpool UK.

We would like to use giffgaff to extend our care offer to people who cant make it into the cafe. If they all had giffgaff SIMs it would be free for them to call. This would reduce the sense of loneliness and social isolation that all have a negative impact on physical and emotional wellbeing. it would be a giffgaff community within our community.

We would stock the sims in the cafe and with the right support giff gaff could use our website so people could join in the cafe. Customers get a great sim and the community can call each other free.

To see more what the cafe does have a look at twitter @kindfullnesscc or www.kindfulnesscoffeeclub.com

To me this isn't an idea?

Seems more of an advert for a venue however wonderful that place maybe.

I agree. If this type of New Idea is allowed to appear here, then it seems that GiffGaff would be obliged to allow adverts for virtually any non-profit making organisation otherwise they will risk being accuse of discrimination. Do you think that is what they want?

I believe that I already did post on this thread, but censorship has prevailed yet again.

Hi veganc,

Thanks for bringing your idea to us here at giffgaff. We're taking a look at it now and will get back to you soon.

Umm..... Cafe

Just order some sims and give them away in your cafe........simples!

exactly what I think. You can start with 30 sims each month ( 1 for each activated ) and if a few activate you can ask for an increase in simallowance, good luck with your cafe project.
