Why Donate to S2R?

Steps2Recovery clients often come to us having lived chaotic lives for a number of years, and with no immediate access to Local Authority funding. We passionately believe that clients should be able to access treatment based on need, regardless of their ability to access funding. In order to be able to do this we rely on the fundraising efforts of our trustees and the generosity of our supporters. There are a number of ways that you can help us. You can donate using the buttons below, or make a direct donation to our bank account. Email info@steps2recovery.org.uk for our bank account details. And don’t forget to Gift Aid!

  • My problem with other rehabs has been that I can’t cope with the move from a closed community to the outside world and I’ve always relapsed. This works for me because I’m still in the outside world while I’m on the programme and I’m learning to manage my own time and make my own choices with support.

  • We’re here because we want to be here. It’s a place you can go to and get hope – not somewhere you’re told to go. None of that authority – being told – that we rebel against.

  • It’s not just drug use. Here I’ve realised there are other things to address, like offending behaviour. There’s lots of different aspects.

  • The team spread positivity and lovingness in the house, and that gets picked up as a way to behave by the clients. They tailor treatment and their approach to the individual and you feel they’re equal, not setting themselves up above us.

  • When I had nowhere to take my son over Christmas, the staff helped me to manage him and stay on the programme.

  • The rooms are good for a residential. There’s good privacy and the hygiene is good.

  • S2R counsellors share their experience, they feel real and they really fight for you.

  • The environment here feels really loving.

  • There’s no us and them with the staff, it helps me feel comfortable.

    S2R Client
  • What I like about the programme is that it’s built on freedom and trust. Can’t go to the shops in other places. The onus is on you – your recovery is about you. Its whether you’re ready to do it…
