The group is like a second family, always welcomed with a cheery smile and a brew. Lots of time for a natter and a catch up even when doing the crafts. Hearing life stories of other people in the group and getting to know them better. At the end of each session I feel happy and content ready to tackle the rest of the day.


I enjoy making friends old and new. Tea and biscuits hurrah. Enjoy any activity we are challenged to take part in.

I was referred to Aspire via Kirklees Council during lockdown.  I found the contact and crafting parcels were a real life saver and I felt encouraged to come to the group when it opened. I love coming every Monday, I feel like part of a community.


It’s Fabulous, keeps the mid active. Everyone’s friendly and has a laugh. Makes me feel wonderful, all of the tutors are wonderful and friendly. We enjoy doing the crafts and refreshments. 

Without this group I wouldn't see anyone. We do amazing things, meet lovely people, and make a lot of friends.


It’s a wonderful social group with good activities. It’s also good for your mind.

Because everyone is happy and I enjoy doing the crafts. It makes me feel very happy, we have a laugh and good time. I enjoy crafts, once you do a craft you get hooked on it. I love Fridays, I call you all my Friday girls. Its my favourite day of the week. I can’t wait for Fridays
