Orkney Alcohol Counselling and Advisory Service

2016 Certificate Level 1 - Establishing

A 40 year old charity which initially specialised in alcohol counselling, but has branched out into 'general' counselling over time. The charity aims to transform a piece of wasteland into a therapeutic space for outdoor work with its clients. Over five years the group plans to grow vegetables (which would be distributed to the local foodbank), plants and trees. It would also work in partnership with Criminal Justice to allow offenders to work with the group as part of their community payback, and offer the land as a valuable resource to the local hospital which is directly opposite.
