A successful partnership between Double Impact and award-winning business, The Treat Kitchen, has reached the final stages in the forthcoming East Midlands Charity Awards, in the Outstanding Charity Support category.
Double Impact’s Nottinghamshire Academy service, which supports people in recovery in Mansfield, Ashfield and beyond, has been awarded a grant of just under £40k which will allow it to continue to run for a further 6 months.
This Sunday, Graham Miller, CEO of Double Impact, ran 26 kilometres (a ‘Metric Marathon’) in his back garden, in a ‘lockdown-friendly’ bid to raise funds for Double Impact and other charities across the UK.
Over the past two weeks Double Impact staff have pulled out all the stops to launch an online recovery network, to continue to support vulnerable people in recovering from addiction since lockdown conditions were imposed.
Double Impact are working hard to continue to provide alternative ways of supporting its service users during the Covid-19 outbreak. In addition to this, we would encourage our service users to take advantage of the other forms of support which are accessible, in order to stay as connected and focused on recovery as possible.
