SURVIVORS OF SUICIDE
RECOVERY Assistance Dogs are doing some
Suicide Prevention Training
for Survivors of Suicide.
The AVIVA Community Fund Crowdfunded over £8,000 to enable RAD to work with beneficiaries to give them support with the Connecting Friends Project and to do some training to help our Community become suicide-safe.
This is for:
* people who've survived suicide & want to stop feeling or attempting it,
* carers, relatives and friends of people who struggle with suicide, self-harming, eating disorders of any Mental Health problems.
This is a 5 week Course (F2F in Leicester or on Zoom) starting on Tuesday, 6 October - Tuesday, 10 November at 2.00pm until 4.00pm. This Course is free and it is kindly funded by the AVIVA Community Fund.

RAISE FUNDS FOR RAD WHEN YOU SHOP AT THE CO-OP
With just over 6 weeks until the Co-Op Local Community Fund closes on Saturday 24 October, we wanted to let you know there’s still time to encourage you to become a Co-op Member and to choose RAD's ACAC (Aylestone Canine Agility Course) project as your cause.
RAD has been working hard to raise their profile over the past year with Co-Op Members, but there’s still currently £3,383.33 unallocated in our community. Please promote our cause on social media by sharing the link below amongst your friends & family. After all, the more members that choose our cause, the more funding our ACAC (Aylestone Canine Agility Course) project will receive.
NB: Many of our RAD Clients find that Agility is a great way to "connect with an abundant life so that we feel like living!"
