Reach Out featured in Westcombe News

Thank you so much to Polly Morgan and the Westcombe News for this incredible article about our Reach Out Project in the current March 2024 issue!

What a testimonial this is from a Reach Out family member:
“For us as a family, Reach Out provides a service that is invaluable, giving us the comfort of knowing mum has a happy place. Mum now has a wider circle of friends and friendly faces that she engages with and consistently feels part of an ever-increasing group that is mutually supportive. My mum is happier, more engaged and more fulfilled thanks to Reach Out, Mycenae House, the staff and people that make use of the opportunities on offer. Our thanks are only matched by how grateful we are that Reach Out exists, helping keep my mum and so many others away from loneliness and isolation

The award winning Westcombe News is a free, monthly newspaper written, produced and delivered by The Westcombe Society to over 4,000 homes and businesses by local volunteers.

Doreen Whitter Exhibition

In conjunction with Royal Greenwich Black History 365 we are delighted to present Vintage Voices by Doreen Whitter, an exhibition using photo manipulation to explore Black Female Identity & Women of Vintage – Empowerment, Connection & Discrimination.

On display now on the ground and first floors at Mycenae House during opening hours.

Doreen’s work is about identity and self image in the digital age of selfies, mobile phones and social media. Turning these things on their head, Doreen uses these instant means but carefully curates and manipulates her self portraiture in a unique, challenging and though provoking way.
