“I’m the sort of person that finds it difficult to stay still, I like to be hands on: keep busy. The Hub helped me enormously in my recovery; it helped me keep active. I volunteered for the Hub for 7 months and with their support I was able to access a plumbing course.”

Volunteer at The Hub Maintains, now in employment.

Recovery from addiction is more than just abstaining from substances. The Hubs serve the recovery community by providing:

  • Therapeutic ways to explore the recovery journey, for example, through art, writing and alternative therapies.
  • Training in life skills to help people get back on their feet and look after themselves.
  • Education to help people return to work.

We operate four enterprises, with the aim of becoming self-sustaining. Not just financially sustainable but also, through the development of a strong, confident and effective service user-led community. The volunteers in our enterprises are gaining real-world experience to help them get a job.

Hub Academy: The High Flyers

For people in recovery from addiction, one of the first steps on their journey is to re-engage in some kind of education, training or meaningful activity. At The High Flyers our aim is to provide both a supportive learning environment for people recovering from addiction and associated trauma and a comfortable conference and training space for delivery of CPD to professionals.
