World Medicine and Grenfell Tower
World Medicine are working along side NADA GB and are offering treatments at weekly free clinics to support victims and families of the Grenfell fire community.
The project is now in its second year at the Al Manaar Cultural Heritage Centre, and in May of this year we started at another venue as well, The Space (214 Freston Road, W10 6TT), running a 2 hour slot there on Wednesday afternoons.
In these clinics we implement the NADA protocol to deal with the effects of trauma, stress and anxiety, insomnia and other conditions experienced by the residents in the area.
Rachel Peckham, Project Leader for the Grenfell programme, recently had an article published on the website of the British Acupuncture Council which gives an excellent background and insight into the work the World Medicine team is doing at Grenfell. Click here to read the article online.
Call for Volunteers:
At present we are coordinating and offering Supervision to those who have been working in the area as acupuncturists.
This is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer closer to home for just a couple of hours weekly or when you can, and it really make a difference to a suffering population.
Preliminary research suggests the vast majority of patients have positive outcomes and also want the clinic to remain open. They also appreciated the way it is run and the care given.
If you wish to volunteer your services, kindly email us stating if you are able to offer short term or long term (up to 6 months) voluntary work. Please be aware that you require DBS clearance.
