Funded Projects

1st Step Development Ventures

Project status: On-going   Location: Falkirk, Lothian

1st Step Development Ventures were awarded £4,925.00 in June 2021 to run their project for 9 months.

1st Step will pilot the HIIC course with eight people in addiction recovery, living in West Lothian and Falkirk. The course helps people understand what affects their health and the health of their communities. It’s based on learning together and gaining an understanding of the social model of health, health inequalities, power and participation and community development approaches in health  and how they can use these to make change happen on a personal level and in communities. 1st Step hope it will support people to develop the skills and knowledge to support their personal resilience and through partnerships promote recovery across Scotland.
