We provide a range of innovative drug and alcohol community programmes across the North West.
Our primary goal is not only abstinence for our clients, but a lifelong recovery with meaning and purpose.
We provide a supportive community not just at the point of recovery, but over, above and beyond, including sustainable job opportunities. Our passion comes through informed knowledge and shared experiences.
Our expert counsellors, professional advisors, and committed volunteer staff have already found recovery, and you can as well with their help and a tailored recovery programme.
Peer support - Lancashire Care Foundation (LCFT)
Funded by LCFT, we deliver a programme of peer support across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre for people with mental health issues. Support is provided by Peer Mentors, a group of passionate and enthusiastic people with lived experience of a range of social issues. Peer Mentors act as supportive companions and trusted allies throughout clients’ time with the project, using their experience as a real-life example that recovery is possible.
We’re involved in the New Leaf project which brings together employers and other services from across Warrington and Cheshire to help change lives, create opportunities and make a positive contribution to local communities and the regional economy. The project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.
We’re proud to be working as part of the Manchester Integrated Drug & Alcohol Service which provides a joined-up substance misuse approach for adults across Manchester. Alongside a range of partners, we provide a host of support services ranging from early intervention courses to psychosocial programmes.
Through this support and the MIDAS partnership, we aim to help clients move beyond abstinence and toward a lifelong recovery.
We work in partnership with the Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (LSCFT) to deliver free counselling as part of the Mindsmatter wellbeing service.
