Shortly after our official launch we unveiled plans for Spectrum People, an initiative that we describe as a time and asset bank, in other words a way for people and businesses to volunteer their time and expertise to help our service users – individuals who need extra support and help on their journey to recovery from drugs and alcohol.
We are looking for volunteers to help in a variety of areas and would like to call upon individuals and businesses from across the Wakefield District to consider how and if they could spare the time to help their wider community.
We have a range of projects that we have underway or planned across the Wakefield District, our most recent being the launch of an allotment project, so any green fingered people who would like to help our service users tend and maintain an allotment would be very welcome. We also desperately need volunteers who would be happy to drive people to and from the allotment which is based just outside the City centre.
We all need a purpose and volunteering is one of the ways in which we can give something back. Even if at this stage you’re not sure how you could contribute we’d love to hear from you so that together we can determine how you can help us to support a life in recovery.
