Project 6 is an award winning voluntary sector drug and alcohol charity based in Keighley, West Yorkshire and Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We have been delivering services for people with drug and alcohol problems and complex needs in Keighley and Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven since 1989 and have evolved in response to the changing needs of the local community.
We are a harm reduction and recovery focused service working to help people reduce the risks associated with substance misuse and we offer highly effective, evidence based support to drug and alcohol users and their families.
Keighley is amongst the 10% most deprived areas in England. Many of the users of our services are extremely marginalised, face significant multiple disadvantages and are often juggling competing demands, with very few resources (personal, social and economic) to achieve and maintain recovery from drugs and alcohol.
Despite this there are real strengths in the community and the individuals who use our service and we focus on these in order to work alongside people to overcome their problems and live positive healthy lives.
Sheffield Alcohol Support Service (SASS) has been working with people with alcohol problems in Sheffield since 1978 and provides recovery focussed support to people across the city. These two organisations have now come together with shared values, culture and approaches to deliver quality services that meet the needs of our local communities and to develop innovative and effective services for our local communities.
