Women’s Support Group

KIKIT women’s support group provides an opportunity for women who have completed the 6-week Diversity in Recovery Programme to continue their journey to recovery. It offers them a safe environment where they can talk about their issues in a range of languages, and their journey so far.

The women’s support group meets once a month and given the facilitator has built up a strong rapport with them, they are able to improve their confidence, self-esteem and reduce their sense of isolation. Group discussions have covered topics such as what women want from recovery, how to reduce anxiety levels as well as confidence building sessions. These are topics that the women have identified themselves, and a female team member always leads the group.

With KIKIT's help and support, Maxine managed to kick her drug habit. This is her story.

The groups are run by female KIKIT practitioners and often include guest speakers such as from police services, Women Aid and WAITS etc, and they are open to women from the local community who have completed the 6-week Diversity in Recovery Programme. These sessions take place every month at the KIKIT drop-in centre and Scala House.
