We are delighted to report that our Amigo project has another client who has completed the buddying process!
At the beginning of the project they felt extremely isolated and anxious but after nearly six months of buddying, now experience newfound confidence through attending Oakleaf with their buddy. Oakleaf offer a range of social inclusion activities that cater towards building confidence, physical health and wellbeing and our client and buddy enjoyed taking part in well-being walks and tai chi.
The positive impact of the project has resulted in such an improvement that our client now wants to volunteer with Amigo to help others in their journey of recovery and will start his training in September. This is a marvelous outcome for Amigo and an extremely rewarding result for all those involved.
World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October raises awareness of this important and growing issue and you can help people recover and be part of their community again by becoming an Amigo buddy. Please spread the word and help us to promote this wonderful project. We accept self-referrals from clients and we are also delighted to recruit and train new volunteers.
If you have any queries or questions about Amigo, please contact either Lynnette or Laura on 01276 707565 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
