We run a variety of groups in East and North Ayrshire.
There is no cost to access our group activities and many are funded by Trusts and Foundation grants/awards and from donations to the charity.
Group activities provide valuable opportunities for Survivors to learn and enjoy new skills, develop healthy relationships, increase social interaction and reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation, building confidence and increasing self-esteem. All activities take place in a safe, supportive environment and are hosted by qualified Tutors and Professionals.
We also offer Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) Training – a new programme being piloted over a 3 year period with the support of the Women’s Fund through Foundation Scotland. WRAP training will empower Survivors to learn new skills and improve their health and wellbeing whilst introducing peer support. WRAP takes the format of a 2 day workshop and we may have opportunities for Survivors who wish to progress to become trained WRAP Facilitators with Break The Silence. This involves completion of the 2 day training and then a 5 day Facilitator training programme.
On the Isle of Arran there is also a peer support group currently available as a pilot project, hosted by a Break The Silence Volunteer.
Break The Silence work closely with the Client-Led Advisory Group to develop and explore new group activities.
