Hi everbody I just thought I would come to see what you are all about ? I have Cerebral Palsy and live in Exeter with supported living help, but find myself alone in the evening. I would like to connect with people to ease the loneliness of these evenings and hopefully make some lifelong friends.

    Hello @AiryFairy :)

    Welcome to the community and it's lovely to have you here with us :) 

    Thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself. The community is a great place to make friends and to share experiences and ideas with one another. As @janer1967 mentioned, the coffee lounge is a great place to start to get the conversation going and to meet new people :) Please see the link here for the coffee lounge. 

    Also, you might be interested in our cerebral palsy information page and network. This is a dedicated space for our members with cerebral palsy to chat about their condition and other related things. The link can be found here, for the cerebral palsy page :) 

    If you have any further questions, please just let us know.

    Welcome to the community @AiryFairy :) How are you doing today? 

    It's great to see that you've joined in with one of our games in the coffee lounge already! I hope that you manage to connect with some likeminded members there.

    As Libby has said, our cerebral palsy category would also be a good place to visit. You may be interested in the CP Cafe that Scope and CP Sport run together on Monday evenings. If you have any questions about this, I'm sure @Richard_Scope would be happy to help.

    Hello @AiryFairy

    How are you doing today?

    Hope you are enjoying the community . There is always something interesting on it - today I learnt more about accessible gardening - now just need to wait for the Spring when the weather is better. 

    Do you have any hobbies ? I am an avid reader as I find that I can be anyone or anywhere when I am engrossed in a good book .

You can also speak to somebody in confidence by calling Samaritans on 116 123 for free or send an email to
