Street Connect has now completed the purchase of its first 2 bedroom move-on flat. The flat will be used for those who have successfully completed a residential rehabilitation programme for those in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions. We know it can be difficult re-integrating back into society after leaving residential rehabilitation, and we want to be offer as much support as possible to enable a smoother transition back into the community. We want to be there to offer support catered to the needs of each individual, as well as accommodation we’ll provide after-care support, volunteering and training opportunities, befriending services and ongoing one-to-one support for as long as its needed. We hope that over time we will be able to purchase further flats to provide more of this type of supported accommodation which is often an essential part of an individual’s recovery journey. Our first two residents move into the flat this week and we are excited to be able to offer this type of support as the work and variety of support develops at Street Connect. We are thankful to Quakers Housing Trust, Glasgow City Church, The Davidson Clinic and Woodhill Evangelical Church who all contributed financially to make this project a reality.
