GIFTED is a home and programme for local women, launched and managed by local women.
It provides a safe and supportive environment where women with life-controlling issues can receive love, value and acceptance and begin living in a hopeful and positive way.
GIFTED is based around a carefully designed recovery programme which has benefited from tried and tested material used in successful recovery initiatives around the UK and beyond.
The women on the programme live in their own room in a recently redeveloped 12 bedroomed property in North Lincolnshire. Here they will learn the skills they need to venture into life with confidence and hope. They will be visited by qualified professionals bringing a wide range of help and volunteers who offer encouragement & moral support. Of course the women will visit other locations to increase their confidence, broaden their horizons and receive specialist training.
GIFTED staff and volunteers will ensure that every step toward recovery, however small, will be celebrated.
GIFTED is part of the newLife family of initiatives. newLife is itself part of a large group of churches called Assemblies of God. At a national conference called STRONGER TOGETHER in early May, Programme Director Sarah Westfield met up with professional running projects similar to GIFTED.
This project called Lighthouse Homes is worth a particular mention.
