Encouraging Individuals to Access the Community
Reconnect offers a peer support service, that allows and encourages individuals to access the community in a safe and appropriate manner. Engagement is key and although overseen by a staff member, the focus is on the group and volunteers taking ownership of the service to ensure it remains meaningful and sustainable.
The group meets five days a week to allow service users to take part in a calendar of activities that they are encouraged to help design. Morning or afternoon sessions are available and each service user also has the option of one to one sessions should they feel this would be helpful. For individuals that may find it difficult to join the group, additional support such as individual sessions or bringing a friend or family member along can also be arranged.
