The walk to freedom foundation
The Walk to Freedom believes in its services and we challenge some of the more dated approaches to drug and/or alcohol dependency, training and adolescent antisocial behaviour in relation to gangs, knife crime and adolescent drug abuse. By thinking differently with our newly designed and innovative programmes, workshops and mentoring, The Walk To Freedom is in a class of its own delivering a quality service to the local community and nationwide based on the needs of its clients, not on what we think they need.
Founded in 2011, we are run from the ground by an ex service user peer led up a team of highly trained and qualified staff and volunteers, many of whom are able to draw upon personal experience of conquering dependency. Indeed, our team’s capacity to directly empathise with the complex challenges facing users provides our programmes with a unique perspective that over 7 years has seen many lives freed from addiction.
