Where it all began:

Meet Keeley Beaney, she is the founder of Joining Hands Joining Hearts (JHJH) and is looking forward to welcoming you with open arms.

From Keeley’s own personal experience of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, in 1997 she started an anonymous support group called Soul Survivors. Keeley said she wanted to create an open space where anyone could go for a chit chat, drink coffee and eat biscuits.

In April of 2016, JHJH was born providing a local coffee morning to help those affected and fulfil the void for support that was based on true friendships.
