The Bridges Grant
The Goldsmiths’ Company Wardens are delighted to support RAPt (the Rehabilitation for Addicted Prisoners Trust) with a grant towards the cost of running the organisation’s acclaimed Hull-based drug and alcohol treatment centre for ex-prisoners, The Bridges.
RAPt, the leading provider of intensive abstinence-based treatment services, runs programmes in prisons and in the community to help people overcome drug and alcohol addiction and live fulfilling lives free from crime. The Bridges programme aims to help men, the majority of whom have been recently released from prison, with treating their drug and alcohol addiction through 12-step treatment, therapy, counselling, and the provision of safe accommodation. Clients stay up to six months at the centre, with a view to being helped back into the community with proper tools and essential life skills.
The Bridges offers a unique and innovative service, particularly suitable for the NFA (no fixed abode) client. It is also highly effective for clients with low levels of education, high rates of emotional and mental health problems, and other complex needs. Its team of highly trained staff and counsellors offers a range of courses tailored to clients’ varied needs.
