EFL Week of Action: Owls partner with recovery charity

6 April 2022

You may have seen members from the club’s community partners shaking their collection buckets at some of our home games.

One such organisation is ‘This is Kickback Recovery Community’, a Sheffield-based registered charity set up over five years ago by Mick Hartley to help people to recover from addiction to drugs, alcohol and other negative behaviours.

The charity runs peer-led group therapy, recovery education and one-to one sessions in person and via Zoom for people recovering from addiction.

The scheme also run drug and alcohol-free social activities and trips such as walking and fishing along with recovery fitness sessions for service users.

Every year 2,000 people leave clinical rehabilitation centres in Sheffield without any ongoing support for their recovery.

Kickback Recovery Community fills that gap for former addicts and their affected family members through a process of ‘connection’ and supported recovery.

A former addict himself, Mick is now six years clean of drugs and alcohol and a level 3 qualified instructor with the charity which he runs with Sally Reedman and a team of volunteers.

This fulfils the SWFC community programme’s mission to increase engagement, training provision and support amongst Sheffield residents in the field of Health and Education.

Anyone struggling with any kind of addiction can access this free service and we are proud to be working in partnership with Kickback Recovery Community CIO.

The charity relies entirely on donations and grants and receives no statutory funding.
