Dance class support and creating welcoming spaces

Updated: Apr 9

Following RiskSTOP Group’s recent partnership with Dorchester Arts, one of our team has attended a Parkinson’s Dance class to see first-hand the impact of these sessions.

Plus, our chosen charity, YOU Trust, has received a considerable contribution to help provide essential resources and create more welcoming spaces for those in need.

On Tuesday 19th March 2024, Natalie Joyce, Group HR & Social Responsibility Associate Director attended, and took part in, a Parkinson’s Dance class run by Dorchester Arts. The classes, held at Dorchester’s Corn Exchange, have become a vital outlet for many of its attendees.

“I was so well looked after, and the welcome was very warm,” said Natalie. “As we know, the sessions focus on improving balance, coordination, and suppleness. However, what really stood out to me was the importance of the social aspect.

“It’s a space where people can spend time with others who understand what they’re going through. It was great to be able to witness the benefits first-hand.”

YOU Trust support

Additionally, RiskSTOP Group Ltd has donated £10,000 to YOU Trust, a charity that operates throughout the South and South West of England.

Every year, the Trust receives over 24,000 referrals and provides support to individuals with learning disabilities, those experiencing long-term mental health challenges, victims of abuse, and individuals facing difficult life circumstances.

This funding is aimed at enhancing the Young Peoples Service, refurbishing the refuge garden, and providing ongoing equipment to support young people in becoming independent citizens.

RiskSTOP Group’s recent activities highlight its commitment to not only social responsibility but also to enhancing social well-being and supporting vulnerable groups in the community.

Reflecting on the positive outcomes of these initiatives, Natalie commented:, “It’s rewarding to see the difference our support is making in the community. This funding and the efforts from all involved are making a real impact. It’s lovely to see.”
