Curnie club recently completed a Delivering Differently pilot in Cowdenbeath. They are pleased to announce that this club will be adopted by Curnie as another satellite centre. This Club will provide much needed support to individuals who are already attending for loneliness and isolation issues. Referral to this club can be through services, or by anyone with the consent of a potential member. The decision to keep the Cowdenbeath centre open was based on the demand from both members and local services. Curnie are now in Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, Levenmouth and Cupar. Curnie clubs recently received funding for a further three years to provide support within communities. Their provision has developed from centre based activities to needs based and are more specific to the individual requirements and uniqueness of the member. They are spending more and more time re socialising and facilitating members to rediscover their own community.
Recent activities included visits to aquagym, travel to various local attractions and group based art, creative writing, and soft approach therapy sessions. This support is very person centred and revolves around specific need. Their service delivery is always evolving as they learn from their client group, listening to feedback from members and services. Another exciting development is the introduction of their new Community Bridge team. This team will meet with potential members on a regular basis to build self-esteem, confidence and resilience. This team will work with referrals from services and community groups bringing in much needed support inside or outside normal working hours.
