Enabling life change through education

We believe people need to understand they have potential before they can think about fulfilling it.

  • 1 in 5 people are directly or indirectly affected by addiction to drugs or alcohol.
  • Shame and stigma still prevents individuals from accessing help.
  • For those that do, 92% relapse within six months.

The drug and alcohol system is desperately failing those it is intended to help.

Something needs to change.

Our courses in applied psychology, philosophy and feminist theory help people understand the root causes of their addiction, not just from the perspective of personal experience but, importantly, within a wider context of social inequality.

Both of these have a powerful, de-stigmatising effect, helping people let go of their past to reconnect with themselves and others.
