Soup Kitchens

In partnership with Our Forgotten Neighbours we run two soup kitchens a week in Finsbury Park and Aldgate to help feed those in need. These are an important part of our work but also give us the opportunity to meet vulnerable people, some with substance and alcohol problems, who can benefit from our other services. 

Windrush Celebration

On 19 June we hosted a fundraising and Windrush celebration evening at the Phoenix pub near Oxford Circus to help raise awareness of the charity . The event was a great success with performers entertaining us into the night. Look out for our next big fundraiser coming soon.

Client testimonial

Check out this short testimonial video from a client who has recently benefited a great a deal from our free counselling service.


This short and clever video says so much about our perceptions of addiction.


Vander is recently finished recording audio version of his autobiography From Rehab to Life and there'll be a soft launch later this year and full promotion at an event we're planning for Spring 2023. Meanwhile, you can still get a hard copy - all proceeds go to the charity.
