Double Impact

Double Impact

Founded in Nottingham in 1998, Double Impact offers a unique service that deals with all the issues facing recovering people, helping to break the devastating cycle of addiction. Addiction affects people from all walks of life and the reasons behind it are complex, although evidence shows that it is most often a response to traumatic childhood or life experiences. Their service users have often lost their home, their health, their job, family, friends, confidence and hope, getting caught up in a vicious cycle of addiction and problems.

Double Impact believes that addiction doesn't need to destroy lives - with the right support at the right time, people can and do recover, able to take up their place in society and be excellent citizens, parents, family members and employees. Double Impact’s services also have the wider effect of greatly relieving the suffering experienced by children and family members of people recovering from addictions.

Their services in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Lincoln and Lincolnshire include:

· Personal development groups

· Accredited learning to build self-esteem and employment skills

· Peer support groups and development of recovery communities

· Volunteer and work placement schemes

· Safe places for people to build a new social network and support each other.

They also run Café Sobar (www.sobar-nottingham.co.uk), a social enterprise which gives people in recovery work experience and a safe place to socialise, with all profits going to support the work of the charity.
