When a rehabilitation service takes a student on placement there is always a risk attached. Our recent experience with Aisling, Amy, David and Jennifer from DCU reminded us of how important it is to take risks and involve students with fresh ideas, sparking imaginations and creativity that turns heads in the development of our services. Over a period of two months Aisling, Amy, David and Jennifer worked with a group of participants from Sankalpa through the medium of visual communications to produce a short film entitled “Recovery please” that we think you will enjoy and share with your friends.
This post is dedicated to the memory of Eugene Finane who died suddenly on Monday 16th May 2011. Eugene was on our team for a year and was due to start a new role as a project support worker. He ran a men’s group in Sankalpa with great skill, compassion and professionalism. He had just completed the Merchants Quay course on addiction and was hungry to learn more and to help others in what ever way he could. He was also very involved with the support group “Unmarried and Seperated Parents of Ireland (www.uspi.ie). May he rest in peace.
