The Moving on Together Community Support Group is a peer-led voluntary group run by ex-clients of the Kingston Wellbeing Service. Members have overcome their own addictions and decided that they would like to help others in the local area who are still struggling on their own journey of recovery.
So what do we do?
All of the committee members are peer mentors, who have been in your shoes. They know what it is like to be held back from achieving your full potential because of addiction and they fully understand the problems that accompanies this. They are all here to support people throughout their recovery.
So how do we manage this?
On Thursday afternoons, between 1pm and 4pm at Queen Mary’s Hall in Cambridge Gardens, we provide an outreach and ocial club for people to drop in for a chat and meet with friends. We also help to co-facilitate groups at the Wellbeing Centre and can give information and advice on questions around recovery.
Challenging and exciting times are ahead. With the acquisition of The Lodge, we will soon be able to offer different therapies. Acupuncture, Indian head massage and art therapy. Working in partnership with the Kingston Wellbeing Service and the Royal Borough of Kingston.
