Story

Hi!

I currently run Leading Light Social (also known as The London Shyness Social Group). This is a peer-run social and support group, and is the largest of its kind in the UK, as well as one of the largest worldwide. We have been featured by BBC Two and BBC Wales, on Rhod Gilbert: Stand Up to Shyness, plus radio shows, news articles and more.

A team of Event Hosts facilitate a huge variety of free and paid events. These vary from weekly pub socials, restaurant gatherings, workshops, improv, days out, support groups and much more! In any event, the purpose is to create a safe and non-judgmental environment for those who are shy, lonely, depressed, have low self-esteem, live with a mental illness etc or whatever the label.

Meetup fees amount to approximately £65 every six months, and are gradually increasing over time.

Any donations will directly be used to pay these fees on the payment day, without delay. I consider this to be a useful safety net, which helps to avoid late payments or putting the group at risk.

Any additional funds raised enables me to begin offering a limited number of free spaces for the support groups and workshops I facilitate, to be allocated to those who cannot afford the fees. I am passionate about creating an environment that is fully accessible, regardless of income or circumstances.

Donations are 100% OPTIONAL! Rest assured that this group will continue regardless, and there is no pressure whatsoever for members to donate to this cause. However, every single donation, regardless of the amount, will make a difference. Every donation counts. Every donation will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Lots of love,
Jaz

    Hi everyone! We have reached over half of our target and it has only been one day! I am so so grateful for your generosity, thank you all so much for donating. If we can reach or exceed our target, the extra funding can be used for amazing things at our events, and to make our support sessions more affordable and accessible. Your donations so far are helping me to reach this goal. Thank you! Lots of love, Jaz x
