Char­ity ROARS onto web thanks to de­sign agency

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

A CHAR­ITY which helps peo­ple with ad­dic­tion is rais­ing its pro­file with a new web­site.

Reach Out And Re­cover (ROAR) based on Church­side has teamed up with web de­sign agency Dream­scape to cre­ate www. rea­choutan­drecover.org.

The two were in­tro­duced through char­ity Cheshire Con­nect, which matches the skills and ex­per­tise of busi­nesses with the vol­un­tary and com­mu­nity sec­tor.

The web de­sign com­pany built a new web­site for ROAR and will pro­vide host­ing and on­go­ing sup­port. Dream­scape also de­signed a new brand and logo for ROAR.

Bernard McCabe from Dream­scape, said: “The de­ci­sion to help ROAR was about putting some­thing back into the com­mu­nity. Giv­ing them a new logo and web­site will hope­fully al­low them to raise their pro­file so they can con­tinue to help peo­ple.”

Louise Cornes, from Cheshire Con­nect, added, “I’m de­lighted Dream­scape have so gen­er­ously of­fered their sup­port to ROAR to help them pub­li­cise the valu­able work they do in the com­mu­nity and to reach out to more peo­ple with the ser­vices and sup­port they of­fer.”

Vicky Mill­ward from ROAR said: “We aim for peo­ple to see the per­son, not the ad­dict, as there is a lot of stigma and ig­no­rance around the is­sue of ad­dic­tion. At ROAR we be­lieve there is much more to re­cov­ery than just putting your sub­stance down.”

Set up in 2014, ROAR is a nine-bed­room re­cov­ery pro­ject where users re­ceive 24-hr sup­port, ac­tiv­i­ties and work­shops to build con­fi­dence and help turn away from ad­dic­tion and crime.
