  • Engagement . . . through daily activity
  • Motivation . . . through challenge & enjoyment
  • Belief in self . . . via team work & contribution
  • Equality . . . members work "side by side" with staff as equals
  • Recovery . . . a belief that recovery is possible
  • Self-esteem . . . through success & contribution
  • Healthy living . . . through healthy eating, physical exercise and purposeful activity
  • Inclusion . . . daily meetings and participation in decision making
  • Participation . . . involvement in governance and community decisions

We facilitate and encourage participation in the community as a route to recovery. We work in partnership with a range of statutory agencies and local voluntary organisations, all helping to deliver the Scottish Government's Agenda for Mental Health.
