Organisational Overview

The client front end department of the organisation will run a set of Social media platforms (website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as the key means of both initial contact and ongoing communications means with people struggling with addiction.

The resources department of the organisation will establish and develop relationships with churches across the UK, and evaluated specialist help groups and rehabilitation centres, so that individuals struggling with addiction who are seeking help can be connected to appropriate assistance.

Vision
  • Recognising that stigma perceived by those struggling with addiction often prevents that individual from seeking help, and that the internet provides a suitable medium (perceptually anonymous) for connection, we aim to maintain a website and Facebook page, and other social media platforms, as the key means of making both initial and ongoing connections.
  • Connecting people struggling with addictions to churches in their local community for support prayers and fellowship.
  • Connecting people struggling with addictions to Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Gambling Anonymous and similar groups and other Core problem help programmes to support them through their recovery.
  • Connecting and referring people struggling with addictions in critical need to treatment centres, rehabilitation centres, counsellors, group therapy.
  • Working with churches, local authorities and other groups to bring an awareness and overcome the global epidemic of addictions in society and associated stigma.

Ethos & values

  • Running social media platforms that are open, honest, balanced and non-judgemental so as to create an environment in which people can feel free to be open and honest about themselves and their own journey in addiction and recovery.
  • We believe that when a person is deeply demoralised, it is crucial in the pathway of recovery to help them out of isolation and disassociation from society by bringing them into a loving and supportive environment.
  • We believe that it is ultimately a connection with God through Jesus Christ that brings long term transformation of life that can help overcome any addiction.
  • We recognise the crucial importance of long term recovery outcomes, so resources will be thoroughly researched and monitored so only the most effective groups and rehabilitation centres are recommended.
