BORDESHALE HOUSE

Bordeshale House offers supported accommodation for up to 6 men in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions. Residents are serious about recovery and have either been through detox or are on established prescription alternatives.

The support we offer is within a fully-furnished, family-style homes instead of an institutionalised hostel environment. The framework of support is based around an addictions recovery programme and includes key working, mentoring, practical training in life skills and emotional support. We will work fully with other professionals who are already supporting residents in other ways.

CONSTANCE ROAD

Constance Road is our other male house. It is a six-bedroom house with shared kitchen, lounge and bathrooms and is also fully furnised. The criteria is the same. As a result applicants apply to The Bridge as a whole and are placed in one of the houses where their is a vacancy.

All residents are expected to participate in volunatry work/training alongside the rcovery program as part of their on-going development.

Timbers

Timbers offers supported accommodation for up to 6 women in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions while also being able to serve the needs of those exiting prostitution.

The support we offer is within a fully-furnished, family-style home. The framework of support is based around an addictions recovery programme and includes key working, mentoring, practical training in life skills and emotional support. Some groups are designed to teach the life-skills needed for independence such as cooking, budgeting and looking after a home, whilst others will look at issues of identity, personal value and positive relationships.

The house is staffed during typical working hours on weekdays, with emergency on-call and a high level of security outside of these hours. The programme is run by trained staff with the help of committed volunteers who are asked to make a time commitment to ensure consistency for the women supported in the house.

We will work fully with other professionals who are already supporting residents in other ways. Residents can stay at our houses up to a maximum of two years.
