The Build on Belief ethos is the simplest of things really, best framed thus: 'We are service users, we are family.' Our own evidence base and collective life experience tells us that most of us, staff, volunteers and service users have little in the way of traditional family relationships and struggle to find a place in the world where we feel that we belong, where being 'who we are' is good enough.
We are firmly committed to the belief that anyone, irrespective of their substance use histories, physical and mental health problems, or previous life experiences can, with the right support find a sense of purpose, improve their health and well-being and achieve an improved quality of life.
Build on Belief sees each of its projects and every single activity we provide as a loose knit family for people who wish to recover from their difficulties with substance use. In order to achieve this, we strive to maintain and build on the following values.
