Running Recovery

Running Recovery

2020-10-07  •  admin  •  Dundee

Working alongside a student from Dundee university, we would like to set up a small running group.

The Student is working on a research piece looks at the benefits of running/exercise in recovery. We would love to have a small group of folk that use our service to participate in this. It would start slowly, walking/jogging before progressing. We would show them how to stretch properly and how to pace themselves, setting realistic goals. It has been recognised in a variety of studies that physical exercise can aid in recovery from substance misuse and benefit immensely in an individual's ongoing mental wellbeing. Goals set then reached show will improve the individual's self-worth and enable them to realise that even greater goals can be overcome with the proper support. As a runner myself I have seen this benefit both personally and in others who I have met through various running forums. In the current climate, running itself is able to take place in small groups of socially distanced individuals. We would need funding to buy appropriate running trainers and clothing. Once we are up and running we would go out once or twice a week with individuals and encourage them to do the same themselves.

Support Cafe on Wheels

Taught by Muhammad - Support Cafe on Wheels

2020-10-15  •  admin  •  Dundee

We want to introduce our Support Cafe on Wheels. Due to the current circumstances, all of our operations have come to a pause apart from our Foodbank. With council community centres being closed we are unable to open all 5 of our support cafes, therefore we are planning to run our Support Café on Wheels – we will take a free hot lunch to the most isolated clients who were attending our support cafes.

We will deliver this to their door, ensuring social distance measures and guidance is in place. This not only provides them with a hot meal once a week but helps tackle social isolation and improve mental health and well-being by engaging with them directly. We’ll take time to listen and chat, so they know they’re not alone. We will focus on the regeneration areas where our support cafes were based, these are areas where people are faced with higher unemployment and lower incomes. Because we have built a wide range of partnerships with many other organisations across the city, we will be able to refer clients on to them, if they are experiencing difficulty or require support.
