Together – You Can Do It! Our Volunteer Empowerment Scheme
The scheme has been supported for the last couple of years with funding from the Health & Social Care Volunteering Fund, having been initially set up through funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the Duchy Health Charity.
As well as seeking more practical help to support the charity’s services, such as gardening, art and music workshops and driving people to appointments in the area. one of the main purposes behind Bosence Farm Community’s ‘Together – You can do it’ programme is to train volunteers to provide recovery and peer-mentoring support for people with drug and/or alcohol dependency and living with poor mental health. ,
The project seeks to recruit volunteers from both the local community and previous service users to become peer mentors. They support and mentor clients at Bosence Farm with a range of activities that help to build their confidence and self-esteem, develop their social and practical skills and improve their social integration.
