Our Positive Activities fund helps local organisations to offer activities for people in recovery. This includes training, opportunities and services that support people to flourish, connect with others, learn new skills, and more.

Here’s an update from our Positive Activities organisations – and an introduction to the new groups funded by our start-up grants.

“I am really enjoying it and I want to go every day – it helps my mental and physical health, and gets me out of the house and used to being around people again.”

Our partner organisations have created a diverse range of activities available at different days and times in the week, in response to requests for more availability and choice. A huge thank you to all our partners and participants!

Now Then magazine recently shared a brilliant interview with Mike from RiteTrax, one of our Positive Activities partners, where they discussed more about the organisation’s work and ambitions.
