Lots of meetings taking place as The Diamond Centre begins to take shape. We’ve had very constructive talks with Aspire in Ryde who it looks like we’ll soon be partnering with to begin a pilot model. Enjoyable and encouraging meeting with Tony at The Church on the Roundabout in Newport and yesterday a very positive meeting with Maryse at IRIS (Island Recovery Integrated Service). Social Services here have also been very encouraging as well as Family Services and various other contacts. I’m hoping that The Diamond Centre will begin work in earnest within the next 4 weeks with the main focus on “Assertive Outreach” which seems to be the main piece of the jigsaw puzzle that’s currently missing on the island. Exciting times ahead!
