A collection of poems on the theme of Connect (November 2021)

A collection of poems on the theme of Connect - November 2021

Earlier this year we launched our search for Poems on the theme of ‘Connect’ – one of the five ways to wellbeing. We received a fantastic response from our community, with different interpretations of the theme focusing on how we connect with each other, with nature and with ourselves.

Thank you to everyone who shared a poem and connected with us and congratulations to the Poets whose work features in this collection.

We are delighted to announce that our collection is now available to order for the suggested donation of £5.

You can place your order on the CAF website.

Your donation will help us support more people experiencing poor mental health and wellbeing, including helping them to build stronger connections with their local community.

This collection is the first of a series. Over the coming years we will be pulling together a collection of poems covering all of the five ways to wellbeing: Connect, Take Notice, Give, Keep Learning and Be Active.

We will be collaborating with local artists to create illustrations and calling out to members of our community to submit poems.

If you would like to order a copy of the book without making a donation, please contact or call 0131 225 8508.
