Double Impact has been privileged to play a supporting role in the lives of our service users, who are the driving force behind everything we do. Working in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, we offer a unique service that deals with all the issues facing recovering people, helping to break the devastating cycle of addiction.
At Double Impact, we believe in the importance of strong, mutually beneficial relationships between our service users, our charity and the community. We offer a range of services for businesses and community organisations, which in turn, increase our social impact and create more opportunities for people recovering from addictions.
Knowing that Boston Recovery Pathways staff could speak my language made it easier to take the first step. I rang them. There was a compassionate voice at the other end of the phone, and I felt listened to and heard.
Having lost her home and job due to alcohol, Mel regains her confidence through volunteering at Cafe Sobar, and has since become a paid member of staff.
Cafe Sobar and Double Impact were delighted to host the National Inclusive Recovery Cities meeting in December 2023. The aim of the collective is to increase the number of cities actively supporting and promoting recovery from addiction at a city-wide level. It’s an approach which emphasises the positive value that people in recovery have to wider society – and, crucially, to remove the shame and stigma around addiction.
The Nottingham Contemporary gallery played host to an afternoon of inspiration, celebration, and triumph as Double Impact held its annual Spirit of Recovery Awards ceremony. The event, now in its 10th year, brought together individuals, partners, and organisations committed to supporting recovery from addiction in Nottinghamshire.
