Hebrides Alpha provides therapeutic employment to individuals with an addiction to alcohol and other drugs, and who are serious about addressing these issues.
Our service users assist us in delivering a wide range of services in the local community as can be seen by exploring the tabs on the left.
As well as participating in the therapeutic employment for 2 days each week, our service users participate in a range of employment related certificated training courses including Manual Handling, Health & Safety Awareness, First Aid, Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS card, which enables them to work on a building site), Cherry Picker and Forklift.
They learn new skills, work as part of a team, have a structure to their week, increase in confidence and self-esteem, they become more employable and they are able to get an honest, up-to-date employment reference from ourselves.
Our parent charity, Hebrides Alpha Project, opened a supported accommodation unit for up to six individuals with addiction problems, in Upper Coll in December 2011. For more information on that please call 01851 820830 or email email@example.com
