​​A new initiative from Seadog Sport

Working in conjunction with the charity U-Turn Homeless Ministry, Seadog Sport is helping to teach fundamental trade skills to homeless individuals who suffer from substance misuse

Seadog works closely with clients from U-Turn's 1.5 stage who are post rehabilitation and are building on their sobriety.  Seadog's Fit For Work program endeavours to aid in key skill development for clients on this scheme, teaching skills such as sewing, labelling and packing products - in return for clients participation, Seadog aquires funding, donations and sponsorships for the charity who provide food, clothing and counselling for clients on the program.
In addition, Seadog tries to provide an environment where people on the program can feel involved on a normal level and just be themselves.

Once a client graduates from this stage, they can continue onto stage 2 of U-Turn's program and become mentors, or use Seadog to provide references for future employment.

On Monday 8th October, the Seadog team went into U-turn to give a hand and cook supper for a group of men, women and children made up of itinerant homeless and also clients going through the U-Turn programme of rehabilitation from drug and alcohol abuse. Ably assisted by some of the staff who had previously graduated from the programme and who are now members of staff at the centre, they dished up a tasty mince and vegetable stew, with jelly, fruit and ice cream for dessert. 

We would like to thank U-Turn for letting us join in and share their day, we had a great time! Seadog Sport.

Things To Come

With a very generous contribution from the JW Foundation, Seadog is looking to expand the workable space of U-Turn’s ‘drop-in centre’ and improving the therapy areas by providing a number of much needed private counselling rooms for their clients, as to date these sessions have often been taking place outside in an open, busy car park on plastic chairs. The proposed changes would also provide space for us to teach their clients basic trade skills as part of our ‘Fit For Work’ (FFW) scheme. Some of these skills, as well as other support are necessary to help with the clients recovery progress.

Seadog has teamed up with other generous sponsors to help improve the space. An additional sponsor has also kindly donated planting for the external areas, which will help lift a very drab building and make it more enjoyable for the clients at U-Turn. In addition these gardens will be maintained by the clients, with the view to empower them with a sense of pride, ownership and responsibility.
