JustBe™

A World Where Women are Free to JustBe!

Just Be Fundraising Slimathon 2021

AN AMAZING DECADE!

JustBe™  celebrated our 10th Anniversary on March 21st 2019 and we had an amazing time, with all our supporters, friends and families.  JustBe™ has grown substantially over the years and we look forward to getting even bigger! Thanks to our Sponsors and Patrons, your support is invaluable!

JustBe™ provides events & activities for women of all backgrounds where they can grow, relax, laugh & learn new skills.

JustBe was established in 2009 and was inspired by a passion to lift and empower women, particularly those who are lonely and isolated in our community. In 2019 we became a community interest company (JustBe4U CIC Registration No. 11879426).

We understand that with the pressures of life we give so much to others, but sometimes we forget ourselves.

Having listened to women over the years we have heard the need for a space where you can put aside the “to do” list, focus on yourselves, and JustBe!

In 2019 JustBe was awarded a community fund of £10,000 from Awards For All towards our Moments For Seniors project. This was a huge sucess with more than 400 seniors benefitting from seven events. We started with a Fashion Show in June 2019 with 210 seniors in attendance and all our models were between the ages of 65 and 89 years old. The next event was a Caribbean Afternoon Tea with 52 seniors reminiscing and dancing to music from their yesteryears which included traditional folk music and dance.

Other events included a Trip to the Seaside for 60 seniors, two Health and Fitness Workshops where our seniors were given exercises to suit all fitness and mobility levels and were also provided with simple recipes and food which were healthy and nutritious.  Caribbean Storytelling, which involved learning about the history of Caribbean food, was also enjoyed.  The project concluded in December with a Christmas Party where all the seniors were entertained by a gospel choir. They kept company, laughed, sang and danced to their favourite Christmas songs and carols with everyone leaving with a Christmas gift to remind them of the occasion. Feedback from our elderly guests whose ages ranged from 55 to 90 included "This is the best party I have ever been to" and "I can't wait for the next event."
