STILL THE HUNGER

PDF Print E-mail

On 1st November 2011 Still the Hunger launched the Structured Day Programme for people in Reading with enduring mental health conditions. The vision was to open a centre where people can support each other as they seek to change old patterns of negative and dysfunctional behaviour within a facilitated self help group environment.

Our aim is to make a lasting difference to people’s lives rather than simply alleviating the symptoms of current difficulties.

Steve came to Still the Hunger for help with anxiety in 2013 and since going through the programme and finding healing he has returned to volunteer for us in the office.  It is really encouraging for new clients to meet with others who have been through the process and in particularly to see Steve now working as part of the team.

Steve says:

‘I got back to work with the group's help, only to retire and come back to Still the Hunger as a volunteer!  I lead worship on a Friday afternoon and I'm actively involved in the back office.  I love it!  I understand intimately what's required having been through the process and have a passion to see lives changed.  Now the charity that helped me get back on my feet want me to help them.  I feel privileged to be here.'

We initially made an appeal to Springboard for assistance with the rent for the room where we will be based. With the rent covered for most of our first year this has allowed us time to apply for other funding while being able to get the day programme running.

We continue to be grateful for the additional support we have had from Springboard and have found it particularly helpful for networking with other charities linked to Springboard.
