Change, Grow, Live, the new providers of drug and alcohol services in Reading, are holding an event for local stakeholders on Wednesday 18 September 2019.
This is an opportunity to meet the new team, hear more about the way in which they intend to deliver services in Reading, and give your views on how you would like to work with them for the benefit of all service users. Lunch will be provided. Please email Reading.firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance along with any dietary or accessibility requirements.
Change, Grow, Live are a national charity whose mission is to help people change the direction of their lives, grow as a person and live life to its full potential. On the new services in Reading they say:
‘In Reading we will be delivering a recovery-focused service with a full range of treatments and interventions designed to support people to take control of their recovery journey and achieve their recovery goals. Our services will include harm reduction, opiate replacement prescribing, community detoxes, counselling, emotional support and supported access to mutual aid. Support in accessing training, employment and housing will also be available.
Maintaining continuity for service users is a key priority for us during the implementation. We are working closely with existing services users to let them know about the changes and providing opportunities to ask questions. We will be sending out regular news bulletins to service users and holding events where they can meet our team and contribute their ideas to service development.’
