The partnership, based at Bricworks community centre in Story Street, brings a new role to provide activities tailored to support people in recovery from addiction to maintain their recovery and learn new skills to help them build lives away from addiction and the crime so often associated with drug use.
On the launch Douglas Dunsmore Dawson, Forward Regional Manager, said: “Forward is excited to launch this new partnership that builds on the services we already offer to people in Hull. Often our clients report feelings of isolation as they leave a life of addiction behind them. This project aims to create a space where they can interact with a community to build their lives away from drugs and alcohol.”
Paul Townsley, Chief Executive at DISC, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Forward on this partnership. Bricworks provides much needed activities and support for people in recovery from drug and alcohol issues. This partnership will allow us to offer increased support to those people from across Hull who need help in their drive to beat addiction.”
