Purposeful Blide

Purposeful Blide

Members can choose to volunteer their time here at the Blide. This is where our Purposeful Blide project comes in; supporting people on their way to recovery through activities like working at our reception desk, helping out in the cafe kitchen, working in the garden or managing some of the admin tasks within the office.

These roles are undertaken in a supported manner, enabling people to work towards their own goals, and at their own pace. Social networks, friendships and confidence develop as people take the opportunity to improve upon and share existing skills and interests, learn new skills and create opportunities for their future.
