GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

NHS Campaign 2020

Campaign for Free Treatments as a thank you to the NHS staff

During the first lockdown in March 2020, to show our appreciation for the extra hard work the NHS faced we joined nationwide campaign with The Massage Warehouse #massagetherapiststogether
It involved an interactive map of UK therapists offering a number of free treatments so that staff from the NHS could benefit from a relaxing therapeutic treatment. Treatments ranged from 1 to 5 in total (1 per person) and could be anything from Massage to Reiki.
The Recovery Well donated 5 treatments in all which have now been delivered.
We are proud to say we were able to deliver a 6th treatment thanks to Graffiq Web Design sponsorship (who created this website).
If you would like to donate a treatment or subsidise to thank your local NHS, please get in touch.

FREE One Hour treatment for selected Home Start Thanet members.

Having benefited myself, from charities such as Oasis, Christians Against Poverty,  Home Start and my local church I have given back by supporting others including NHS workers, Home Start Thanet (below) and others by donating free treatments or vouchers.

I will continue to do this as and when I can on an ongoing basis. I hope to do something meaningful with a good cause again in the near future.

Home Start Thanet

Home Start offer support to families in Thanet from all backgrounds and in varied circumstances with children under the age of 11 years old.

The staff, who work closely with the children and parents, will select a candidate each week that they think will benefit from a treatment with me and who wouldn’t normally (due to their circumstances) be able to access it.

If you are in need of support, please visit their website Home Start Thanet where you can find more information and make a self-referral.

Their programmes include:

A Parent’s Guide

A Guide to Home Start Thanet – Support Services


Volunteering

Home Start also need volunteers to help with the children and families.  You will be offered full training. For more information see Volunteering at Home Start Thanet.

My story with Home Start...

After having my second child and becoming a single mum, I really struggled with my mental health and managing daily life in general. I was assessed by a member of staff from Home Start and offered support through their scheme by having a volunteer assigned to me once a week for an hour or two. It was essential for me to regain some equilibrium and control in my life so I could be better as a person and parent. This is the main reason I choose to support Home Start so that others going through similar circumstances can not only benefit from Home Start’s amazing service but also have a healing and balancing treatment that will also help point the individual towards the road to recovery or purely offer an opportunity to have some relaxing time for themselves.
