We are seeking funding for The Reconnection Project. Our vision at the project is to improve the communities of Dundee, by working with a mixture of people with addiction issues who may also have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to enable them to learn basic skills that enable them to move on from addictions and into real work, thereby helping them to feel significant. We believe that support should be provided in ways which meet the requirements of each recoveree as a unique individual, and we aim to assist people to lead normal, natural, valued lifestyles, and be fully involved in community life. We aim to avoid practices which treat people inappropriately or inflexibly, or which segregate people or label them as different, disadvantaged, or devalued. We work to address the need by providing people from disadvantaged backgrounds training to increase their chances of employability and to provide them with a more productive lifestyle.
