The Bridge

We run family style homes for the marginalised members of our community


The Bridge exists to bring hope to those who have no hope, to see those who are marginalised being supported and valued, and to see people set free from the limitations of life-controlling addictions. The Bridge was started in 1999 in partnership with Oasis Church to serve disadvantaged members of our community. You can learn more about the established recovery programme here.

Our House

Bordeshale house


Bordeshale House offers supported accommodation for men in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions.



Timbers provides supported accomodation for women in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions while also being able to help those exiting prostitution.


Our Aims
  • To provide support within a safe, family-style home in The Bridge where people feel valued and develop relationships of trust with the staff.
  • To equip people for sustainable living on a practical level, teaching the necessary life skills and establishing friendships and support networks in the community.
  • To help people to address life-controlling issues such as addictions, mental health issues and other problems, working closely with other professional and voluntary agencies, providing individual support and friendship.
  • To provide low-level, individual support for those who are making the move on from supported accommodation, encouraging and equipping them to sustain life in the community.
Core Values
  • To communicate our Christian beliefs in a practical and supportive way and in accordance with the Faithwork's charter
  • To do everything with an underlying attitude of service, friendship and faith in God.
  • To show God's love for people by:
  1. Helping all who are in need wherever we are able, regardless of their colour, race, gender, religion or age.
  2. Recognising and communicating the value of each individual.
  3. Standing up for those we serve, challenging what is unjust and promoting what is just.
  4. Doing everything to a standard of excellence
