Some of the services that Adullam provides are designed and delivered to support very specific types of people and/or issues.
Adullam runs projects that are tailor-made for certain client groups. These groups include young people, those with alcohol or substance misuse issues, and those who have been affected by gambling addiction. These projects still use an asset-based approach but have elements specific to their residents.
The ways in which our specialist services are run means they have audience-specific elements within them. These have been developed over time with a heavy focus on lived experience and peer mentoring. Elements include:
- Running of mutual aid groups such as Narcotics Anonymous
- Training, including Self-Management and Recovery Training (SMART), NVQ qualifications, Reduction and Motivation Programme (RAMP) and Recovery in Cheshire East (RICE)
- Close relationships with schools, college and youth support networks
- Partnerships working with gambling addiction charity Gordon Moody
Coproduction is a very important aspect of our specialist services. We get our tenants and residents involved and benefit from the inside knowledge they have of the situations that others within the project are having to deal with.
Our specialist services have been created as a result of expertise we have gained through our original services. People who find themselves homeless or facing homelessness often do so for common reasons. By engaging with specialists in the fields concerned we provide expert support to help people get their lives back on track.
Sadly, no. As with our other projects, there are agreed routes into our services. Find details on our How to access our services page.
Many of our projects benefit from the help of volunteers and those with lived experience are particularly welcome. There is a formal application process, and a DBS is required. Find details on our Volunteer page.
We produce figures against standards set by the Regulator and commissioners and our service users often tell their stories to show how their lives have improved. Keep an eye on our news and successes for these.
