We work with males over the age of 26 years who have had a drug or alcohol problem. Our aim is to give people back their self esteem and a purpose in life away from addiction.
We do this through a variety of ways such as having monthly outings e.g.: fishing gorge walking, bowling. We also do a community garden. This helps people give something back to their communities and helps break down stigma.
We meet on a Tuesday from 12-2.30pm. We also do a Thursday from 10am-12.30pm which is a drop-in with activities such as board games and arts and crafts. We have opportunities for people to volunteer to help out at the groups.

Echo Peer Coaching is a free telephone support service that matches volunteers who have cared for someone with an eating disorder with other parent carers who are currently supporting someone through recovery.
Not having someone to talk to regularly about the challenges and frustrations of supporting someone with an eating disorder can be lonely and isolating, particularly if you're not able to discuss and share your feelings with family and friends. A friendly 30-minute chat on the phone once a week can make all the difference.
The Echo service will equip carers with the skills and knowledge needed to support those suffering from an eating disorder, helping them to break free from the traps that prevent recovery.
Peer coaching is a system of giving support founded on key principles of respect, shared responsibility, and mutual agreement of what is helpful. Rather than giving advice or providing solutions, a peer coach’s role is to actively listen, provide a sounding board, and most importantly, help the other person find insight and solutions for themselves.
Peer coaching is not based on psychiatric models and diagnostic criteria. It is about understanding another’s situation empathetically through shared experience.
