We develop strategic relationships with key partners whose services support delivery and outcomes, adding real value to our service offering.
For example, we have formed a partnership with Breaking Free Online to provide an online treatment and recovery programme for our service users. We also work with Intuitive Thinking Skills in multiple locations, to provide an accredited educational programme giving service users the psychological tools to control their addictions.
We are a national organisation that is delivered locally and is embedded within communities. We continually develop local partnerships with organisations rooted within and ‘owned’ by the communities in which we work. This allows us to maximise community engagement and contribute towards a strong local voluntary sector. For example, in Birmingham we work with SIFA Fireside - a local charity providing help for homeless and vulnerable adults.
Many of our services also partner with local schools and colleges to educate young people on the risks of substance misuse.
We support many local recovery and community groups such as Mutual Aid, reflecting our commitment to Asset Based Community Development. A great example of this is Red Rose Recovery in East Lancs. Staff at our Inspire service refer service users to Red Rose for community recovery programmes such as allotment projects and sports activities, supporting people into recovery and increasing recovery capital.
