We know it can be difficult re-integrating back into the community after completing a residential rehab program, and where better to get support than from a local church?

For those reintegrating into the community after residential rehabilitation we currently provide supported accommodation, voluntary work and help to access vocational training or employment as appropriate.

Support & Purpose

By providing support, volunteering opportunities, and support towards further education or employment, it not only provides the vital support needed at this stage of the individual's journey, but also gives purpose and helps them to keep busy.

Move-on accommodation

We currently have 2 move-on flats with 4 bed spaces, where men or women who have successfully completed a residential rehabilitation program can get further support whilst reintegrating back into the community and helping them prepare for independent living. The usual stay of residents is 6 - 18 months. Residents will receive support through a designated Support Worker and also from our Housing Support Co-Ordinator for housing management issues. This is a vital part of our aftercare program, as we seek to support people to become valuable contributing members of society once again. 

After doing a Teen Challenge programme I found freedom in Christ. From not having any opportunities to having many. I moved into a Street Connect move-on flat and Street Connect has given me the opportunity by giving me the chance to volunteer and offer hope to those in addiction, homeless and with life controlling issues. -  Mark

Volunteering

We have a number of volunteering opportunities at Street Connect, but individuals with an addiction background on our aftercare program must have a sustained period of abstinence before being able to be involved in frontline work. As mentioned above, this is great for keeping people busy and giving them a sense of purpose.
