The Feel Good Friday group offers a range of activities for our service users. These sessions offer peer support, health and nutrition advice, relaxation and range of computer skills. Some of the members attend an acu-detox clinic which runs 3 times per week. This clinic uses Auricular Acupuncture to help balance mental and physical wellbeing. We offer Qi gong and other types of meditation within this group to help relaxation.
Our recent Community work has involved in a women’s group called ‘the wee woman’s group’ in Govan. The group set up a small choir and they have been singing at local events and featured on local radio. The group were involved in a community litter pick recently – they then made sculptures using the rubbish collected with the local community artist. The sculptures they made were a 3D versions of art work contained in our service user written book ‘Singular Voices’ – a powerful book containing stories, poems and art work depicting 5 people’s journeys through recovery.
We recently delivered a pilot programme to the ‘Tomorrow’s women’ service which incorporated a mixture of therapeutic workshops, prevention and education and alcohol and justice work. We are looking into setting up new community groups across the city using volunteers.
