Here at NHR we strive to work towards establishing and strengthening links with local services in addition to working closely with residents to establish areas of improvement, things that work and developing new areas of support. The following projects have been developed to enhance and further develop the support that NHR provide increasing awareness within local communities, establishing further links with partners and more importantly ensuring residents that access NHR are able to access a wraparound support service through the partnerships established.
We would like to express our gratitude to funders that have been able to see the work we are undertaking and support NHR in reaching and supporting more individuals.
Building Hope Project (Jan 2023 - Jan 2026)
Through ‘Building Hope’ Project NHR residents will access in-depth and intensive support to enable them to realise and sustain their recovery. The Specialist Addiction Recovery Worker will assist residents to engage with their peers in a positive and supportive manner. NHR are a peer led organisation with Lived Experience and we will work closely with the community and partner organisations to sustain and build strong working partnerships. NHR will engage residents at the earliest point possible to provide recovery-focused support working with partners to build a wraparound support network addressing mental health, physical health relapse prevention and developing overall wellbeing. In addition the project will promote and further develop links within the recovery community to further develop strong, positive and supportive long term relationships. The project is made possible thanks to National Lottery players through a Reaching Communities grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.
