We worked with Momentum Skills from 2017 to 2020 when they ceased operations.
Momentum had a long history of supporting adults with brain injuries, mental health issues and/or who are recovering from substance abuse. We started working with them in the summer of 2017 when they placed one of their clients with us as a volunteer. This arrangement has continued successfully to the present day.
During December 2018 we partnered with Momentum in a funding bid for the Green Gift Project. A biweekly programme saw four cohorts each year learning gardening and outdoor DIY skills at Garthdee Field with joint mentoring teams from Momentum and GFAA. It was with great disappointment that we learned that Momentum Skills had ceased operation as a result of financial pressures during the 2020 COVID-19 emergency.
