Agencia’s Active Recovery service established “The Detox Club.”  The Detox Club is going from strength to strength this year with it’s recent award from The Big Lottery fund for £10,000 already being used to improve the lives of our service users and wider North Lincolnshire community.

The Detox Club (which was initially established by Agencia’s Active Recovery service to offer support to service users), transitioned into a constitution within its own right earlier this year, following a meeting and voting process which involved service users and staff.

The Big Lottery award, which was secured earlier this year allows us to expand our pre-existing offerings such as training, activities, social events and trips, as well as an opportunity to fund new items such as gym passes and day trips.

The Detox Club is open Monday – Friday between 10:00am and 12:00pm as a drop in for Active Recovery Service Users and their families. The Detox Club is already having a positive impact on our Service Users and their families by supporting the Service Users in their recovery journey and serving as a preventative measure for relapse.   This is reflected in our Service User satisfaction scores, with 86% fully agreeing that this is the best recovery service for them and 99% stating they would recommend Active Recovery to friends or family if they needed similar treatment or care.

The Big Lottery Fund ensures money raised by players of The National Lottery helps communities to achieve their ambitions and thrive by awarding grants, bringing communities together, and sharing what they learn with communities, other funders and the government.
