Looking for Help
Our mission is to open doors for people affected by substance use so they can improve their lives and those of their families and communities.
* From a life dominated by substance use to one of freedom and choice;
* From a life of worklessness to one enriched by learning and meaningful activity
* From exclusion to security and participating in community life;
* From a life of crime to one without offending;
* From a troubled adolescence to a happier adult life.
* From a family that is fractured to one where people are together
We do this by sticking to our fundamental values
Belief – We believe people can make it
We firmly believe in everyone’s potential. We know that people can and do make remarkable changes.
Respect – How we work is as important as what we do
We will treat everyone respectfully – whether they use our services, work for us or work with us. We are creative, curious and flexible.
Partners – We do it together
We see partnerships as the key to better futures for people affected by substance use. We develop strong and meaningful partnerships with people who use our services, staff, other agencies, our funders, and our communities. We will ensure that our services are accessible to all.
Ambition – We focus on recovery and outcomes
We want a world where people are no longer blamed for their substance use, no longer socially excluded and are given support to take ownership of and rebuild their lives. We will call for more understanding, more compassion and more resources to make this happen. We will support staff and service users to keep learning and to set and achieve ambitious targets.
We will always have hope that people can create something better for themselves. Whatever they choose that to be.
Change will happen at the speed of trust.
People who use our services tell us all the time that what matters the most to them, is that we create a safe place that allows them to just be.
When someone is ready to make changes, we believe they need access to the right support in that moment, and we will try and accommodate this to the best of our ability. We offer an environment that is safe and trustworthy and we commit to being kind, authentic, non-judgemental, understanding, truthful, transparent, efficient, realistic and genuine, you don’t need to take our word for it, these are all the values that people who use our service have told us.
We are a day service that offers structure, support and guidance through a menu of groups and activities, that give you the choice to find, develop and create your own recovery. No two people are the same and likewise no two recoveries will be the same, so we support all recovery models. The best way to see what we can offer you is to give us a call and we will arrange a time for you to come in and have a chat.
We think Hamoaze is a pretty special place but don’t take our word for it, here are some of the things people have told us…
