We can't forget some of our society's most vulnerable people

Overcoming problems with drugs, alcohol, or mental health is hard at the best of times. It’s even harder if you can’t leave the house to access support.

We’re working really hard and adapting how we work to make sure every single person we support continues to get the help and care they need. We also want to be there for anyone who finds themselves struggling a bit more in these unprecedented times.

But we need your help

Our online chat service is there for anyone concerned about their drinking, drug use or mental health, or that of a loved one’s.

We know that sometimes people can be afraid to ask for help. It can also be overwhelming to ask for that help in person, or to know where to turn to.

People seeking help or reassurance can chat confidentially to trained advisers in real time on our website. Our advisers are there to reassure people, offer advice, and signpost to resources or services that can be of help, be that our own or other organisations’.

Our advisers all have at least two years’ experience supporting people struggling with drug, alcohol or mental health problems. Some also specialise in different areas, such as supporting older people who feel they’re drinking too much.

We pride ourselves on giving non-judgemental, human support, no matter the problem.

Chris was absolutely fantastic and gave me all the information I needed to help my family member who is struggling with addiction, very friendly and just the type of person you need to speak to at a time like this. I love the live chat option as well as I am really emotional about this and most likely would have sobbed down the phone if I had to call the office
