Tea in the Pot - Glasgow
Tea in the Pot is a drop-in & support service in Govan, Glasgow, run by women for women anywhere. The organisation exists partly to address the social isolation of women, regardless of their circumstances. Tea in the Pot works across generations, often with grandmothers, mothers and daughters from the same family.
Women are referred to Tea in the Pot by their GPs and social work - social prescribing in action. Issues faced include addictions, abuse, cancer, and bullying in the workplace; many women are lonely, isolated, live alone and do not see a human being from one week to the next.
The women who attend benefit through engagement in their communities, meeting other women and attending meetings, political or otherwise. Furthermore, it is likely that participants will pass this information to their families and the wider community.
