This early intervention service aims to give children and young people access to a listening ear and help equip them with coping skills and strategies to help promote good mental health and wellbeing.

ONGOING PARTNERSHIPS

PERTH AUTISM SUPPORT

Following successful pilot programmes of Parent’s Pilates, Parent & Teen Fitness & Strength, and Youth’s Fitness, Scotland All-Strong has formed an ongoing partnership with PAS, currently delivering group and one-to-one sessions for the Young Adult Fitness Project. Delivering positive experiences of a wide variety of exercises and approaches to training in our fully-private and welcoming setting, as well as relaxation techniques and opportunities for peer interaction, it is wonderful to see the progress these youngsters make in terms of confidence, ability and attitude towards training, helping to set them up for lifetimes of activity and self-care.

COMMUNITY PROGRAMMES

PKAVS

(Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Service)
Scotland All-Strong is delighted to be delivering programmes of movement, mindful relaxation and peer support to groups of unpaid carers through the PKAVS Carer’s Hub, funded by the Perth & Kinross Council’s Community Investment Fund. Carers benefit greatly from this time to themselves and with each other, sharing the challenges and experiences of self-care in demanding roles and busy lives.

DEVELOPMENT

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS CLUB

By Firstpoint

Ray, our award manager, and the whole Firstport team have been instrumental in the early stages and development of our not-for-profit enterprise, both in terms of financial support and encouragement. We won ‘Start It,’ in late 2018, ‘Build It,’ in late 2019, and we look forward to an ongoing relationship as we look ahead to widening our social impact and reach in 2020 and beyond.

COMMUNITY AWARDS

NATIONAL LOTTERY COMMUNITY FUND

We were delighted to receive an Awards for All, which has enabled us to launch and develop our core programmes of ‘Fitness to Feel Better,’ combining a choice of workout, with guided relaxation and facilitated peer support for the recovery, self-management and early intervention/prevention of common mental health issues. Thanks to National Lottery players we are currently able to offer these 8 Week Programmes for just £32 per person.

RECOVERY SUPPORT

SELF MANAGEMENT AND RECOVERY TRAINING

Scotland All-Strong is delighted to be working with SMART Recovery UK, as well as Perth & Kinross Council Alcohol & Drugs Partnership, to hold weekly meetings of both SMART Recovery and SMART Family & Friends, for anyone suffering from addictive behaviours and associated mental health issues. In addition to this, we offer small-group relaxation sessions prior to each meeting of peers.

SUCCESS STORIES

SUPPORT IN MIND PERTH

We have delivered two very successful programmes of activity, relaxation and peer support to users of Support in Mind Perth, unpaid carers who look after those with more severe mental health conditions, and we look forward to providing more in due course.
