Men’s Group



Usually meets monthly for a varied programme planned by the group at Stanmore Road. 

In July the Men’s Group enjoyed a meal at the Famous Grouse Restaurant at Lincoln.

A proposed trip to Glenfalloch station in July was postponed with a target day of Thursday 13th September. This will be a very scenic trip into the headwaters of the Rakaia River Valley. Come along to get out of town for the day.

On the following Tuesday (18th September) we will be visiting the Anne Frank exhibition at the Air Force Museum.

Proposed October events include a trip to Arthurs Pass on Thursday 11th October and a BBQ lunch at Waikuku on Tuesday 30th October. Now that the weather is getting warmer it would be great to see you out and about.

If you have yet to try a Men’s group activity come along and give it a go! We’d love to see you so come and join us for some quality time out with the guys.

I believe if people start attending from hospital, they are more likely to engage once living in the community. Keep keeping on!

Over the time as I see consumers grow and become more confident, I am amazed. The groups, activities and support given is well received by consumers, and family/whanau. You hold a valuable service, keep challenging.

Step Ahead has been very useful for our family member. It has given her strength and confidence to attempt things she would never have done in the past. She is meeting a lot of people with similar problems to her, and they can face new challenges together and help one another by talking about it.

I think you have a great organisation. My son has greatly benefited from all the activities he has been involved in and I’d like to thank you for the great job you are doing. May you keep going for a long time, you have really helped him in his life.

Always had positive feedback from clients, very well presented and an enjoyable monthly newsletter.

Your service is excellent, keep up the good work. Being able to engage people into Step Ahead prior to discharge is very useful from our perspective, for the person, and focusses them on the community, not extending the inpatient stay.

I have nothing but praise for Step Ahead . . . The clients I have worked with regarding issues have been treated fairly, with respect and dignity.
