The Summergrove project came to an end in the summer of 2011 after more than six years providing all round support and accommodation for families living with addiction. Uniquely, Summergrove provided not only secure accommodation, but supported housing for the whole family so both parents and their children could stay together while receiving treatment.
As a result many children avoided going into care, or came out of care to rejoin their families once again.
Our track record
We worked in partnership with a local authority and housing association to design and deliver an innovative new model of supported housing designed by service users.
Here’s a snapshot of our achievements over the last seven years:
- We accommodated 78 adults and 109 children
- 26 children came out of care and went back to their families
- 49% of families reloacted into permanent accommodation
- 61 adults accessed training
- 32 adults started voluntary work
