Active Choices is one of Derby County Community Trust’s longest running programmes which has supported over 1000 participants through their addiction journey since its inception in 2012.
It is designed to support individuals with getting more active and maintaining routine as they recover from substance misuse. It also provides sustainable exit routes for participants.
Working in partnership with local organisations including homeless shelters, hostels and rehabilitation and treatment centres, along with the local authority in wider Derbyshire, we accept referrals on to the programme when individuals are committed to their abstinence.
There are volunteering and mentoring opportunities within the project, which has seen participants become members of the Derby County Community Trust team to support others.
Participants also get the chance to take part in experiences designed to reward their commitment. In the past these have included player visits, Christmas meals, celebration events and the chance to play at other clubs and grounds.
