Respect and Nourish Yourself
Moving away from treatment services can often lead to isolation. We encourage graduates of our programmes to maintain care of themselves by attending our donation based weekly yoga class and monthly development group.
YOGA – We hold a 90-minute yoga class every Thursday evening from 5pm to 6.30pm at our offices in Hackney, exclusively for people who are currently on or who have graduated from any of our courses. The class is gentle and encourages people to develop a healthier relationship with their bodies, to relieve stress and to promote self care. It also provides an opportunity to meet and connect with others.
Peer Development Group – The Peer Development Group exists as a space for graduates of our programmes that are volunteering or employed to receive support during their 6- month placement and afterwards. It is a place to share good practice and information and develop knowledge on specific subjects delivered by guest trainers. It takes place on the last Tuesday of every month from 5 to 6.30pm. In 2016, we received £19,816 from the People’s Postcode Trust to expand the support we offer graduates from our training courses with ongoing skills and development. People’s Postcode Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
