As you may know, from October 1st 2017 the contract for the delivery of drug and alcohol services in the Bradford District will transfer to Change, Grow, Live (CGL) a national charity. Project 6 will be delivering some prevention, early intervention and Recovery elements of the contract once TUPE has concluded and the new model has been implemented. From the 1st October our core Structured Treatment Service, Brief Interventions Service and Airedale Fresh Start will be sitting with CGL. We are currently working on developing pathways with CGL and these will be communicated to you by CGL in due course.
We recently received a letter from someone who has used our services as below:
Being a service user at Project 6 has transformed my life.
Before attending Project 6 my life revolved around my drinking rather than my family or my life.
From making the first call to reception I have always been treated with care, compassion and guidance. My key worker and family worker gave me the tools and confidence to change my life along with the bumps in my journey. I have always felt well supported and never a burden.
There is always someone around to talk things through which always helps make things seem better/ Along with my alcohol dependency I also suffer mental health problems which can make everyday life feel unbearable at times.
My wish is that Project 6 will be able to continue being the wonderful organisation that it is and transform many more lives for the better.
We can confirm that Project 6 will continue to provide a caring and compassionate service to people within our community and ensure that service users do not fall through the net during this transition period.
Project 6 will continue to offer the following services:
• Family Services: which include Young Peoples work, Family Support, support for women misusing substances during and after pregnancy, Domestic Violence Advocacy and Concerned Others work.
• Recovery Services which include: Structured Recovery Programme delivery, peer support and volunteering opportunities and the delivery of IAPT interventions as part of My Wellbeing College. The early intervention and community engagement roles will be added to this team after the contract transition and TUPE has been concluded.
• Complex Needs work: which includes Out of Hospital Alcohol Workers, our new multi agency Crisis Service (launch details coming soon) and our Health and Wellness Pain Management service.
During this interim period please feel free to contact us if you have any queries and we will point you in the right direction.
