Strong Connections

Strong Connections is yipworld’s exciting new initiative, providing fun and interactive activities in communities throughout East Ayrshire for whole families. A dedicated team of yipworld staff are on hand to help individuals and their families to build confidence, meet new people, learn new skills and become active citizens within their communities.

Activities such as family movie nights, joint cooking and baking classes, messy play, walking and cycling groups and more are designed to be engaging and accessible. Furthermore, our dedicated Careers Adviser provides a host of support for parents and young people; from help finding and applying for jobs to advice and support with Universal Credit, we can ensure that you find the support you require.

A devoted Sports Development Worker provides a multitude of fun, family-friendly sports and health and wellbeing workshops. Staff are also trained in a variety of holistic therapies including Indian head massage, baby massage and Reiki to give families a chance to wind down after a busy day of school, work and housekeeping.

From new-born babies to gran and grandpa and everyone in between, everyone is welcome – so look out for a Strong Connections group near you!

Rankinston Community Centre every Monday

New Cumnock Town Hall every Wednesday

Muirkirk Community Wing every Thursday
