The mission of Street Connect to offer hope and opportunity of recovery for individuals disadvantaged by addiction and associated issues including homelessness and poor mental health. This is achieved by working closely with church partners, connecting with people in need and helping individuals to make positive decisions for their future. The difference we make is outlined below.
Evaluation of the progress of participants who were supported in this way shows the following percentage of participants reporting improvement or stability in the following areas:
“I can’t speak highly enough about what Street Connect has done for me. I was a homeless drug addict living on the streets of Glasgow and had been on drugs for over 20 years. I could see no way out until I met [a member of Street Connect staff]. When he spoke to me and offered to take me for a coffee I agreed, and it’s one of the best decisions of my life, everything has changed for the better since that day. It’s 10 months since then and I’m no longer on drugs, will be off my methadone soon and now have my own place. I now see a future for myself.”

“All I can say is I’ve been [to One-To-One meetings] three times and had a good chat with Angela [Support Worker]. She’s so nice and understanding. She’s trying her best to help me deal with all my problems. I’ve had a lot of stuff in my life to deal with! Which I’ve not even dealt with yet. So I’ve still got a long way to go. With Angela’s help I’m sure I’ll get there.”
