Kick-start Activities for RecoveryA project by Telford After Care Team (TACT)
Telford After Care Team has, since 2012, run a comprehensive and pioneering programme of volunteering for service users in the Telford area. We have continued to develop and grow this programme and now offer a variety of volunteering opportunities across the services on offer from Strickland House. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds but particularly encourage individuals from the Telford area who currently access services (whether this be for addictions or mental health). In order to volunteer you must be abstinent from illicit substances (if you were accessing services for illicit substances) or alcohol (if you were accessing services for alcohol). Our focus is on this group so that opportunities can be provided to those who have been directly affected by these issues to positively contribute to the community and support those individuals who are not yet as far into their recovery. This approach not only has a significant evidence base but has allowed TACT to provide significant levels of support to individuals throughout the community for the benefit of service users and volunteers alike. In addition to welcoming those from a service user background TACT also welcomes those who are able to give their time to support individuals with their recovery.
