Aspire is there to help with life’s challenges such as problems with drinking or drugs, or if you’re just looking to live a happier and healthier life.
If you are concerned about something and don’t know what steps to take, Aspire have lots of advice and information that can help.
They understand everybody’s experience is different and personalise your support.
‘If someone was nervous to go to a service I’d say “don’t be fearful”. Even if you need help for other issues like housing, the workers will do everything they can.’
Aspire’s services are open access, and free to those who need them:
There is a satellite office in Bretton; in-person visits are available by appoint – call or email to arrange this.
There are also peer support (mutual aid) groups that run in the Bridge Street building, such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Contact those groups direct to find out about attending (the names are linked to their pages for contact information).
Volunteer for Aspire
Dependable and responsible volunteers and peer mentors are always welcome. You don’t need to have experience with drug or alcohol issues, there are a range of roles available. Contact Aspire via the phone numbers or email given, and ask to speak to the BRIC (Building Recovery in Communities) lead.
