Duffs’ takes a Different Route
Last week saw Head Coach John Duffy pop in for a brew and a chat with our Different Routes group, which has been running three times a week over the last 20 months. The Different Routes programme is funded by Wigan Council through The Deal Community Investment Fund and works with men who have long-term illnesses to provide diversionary activities to help cope with living with illness and pain and reducing isolation through a social lifestyle programme.
Each session helps beneficiaries to build new habits, long term behaviour change, setting goals, maintaining changes through fun, informal sessions, helping beneficiaries to support each other in achieving change and discuss issues and positives they have found from their behaviour change through social activities such as archery, board games, Wii golf (which is the definite favourite), chess games, using the VR and many more.
If you would like more information on the programme please contact Steve Maden on 01942 487 847 or via email on Steve@leighcommunitytrust.co.uk
