Redemption Project :

The Redemption Project provides structured day programme with emphasis on personal recovery through skills development, education and employment support as a tool for sustainable recovery and re-integration in to the wider community

The aim of the Project is to primarily address the barriers experienced by people recovering from addiction and mental illness in gaining paid employment due to the following;

  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of need skills and training
  • Stigma and negative attitudes from prospective employers
  • Low stress threshold
  • Lack of education / recognised qualification
  • Offending history
  • Disclosure of substance misuse / mental health history accounting for poor work history
  • Multiple forms of deprivation (poverty, homelessness, and family support)
