Outreach support in Rochdale now provided by Turning Point

News item posted: 09 May 2016

Westcliffe House, a Turning Point service, has been operating for over ten years in the Borough of Rochdale, supporting people affected by substance misuse. The service provides residential support to local people to help them overcome drug and alcohol misuse, and to develop the skills they need to continue their recovery journey.

Recently, the service absorbed Stepping Stones Floating Support which helps vulnerably housed people. The aim of the service is to enable people to live independently and safely in their own homes by providing advice on tenancy management and supporting clients to maintain their recovery.

Vicky Wright, Senior Team Leader at Turning Point’s Westcliffe House service said: ‘This is a very exciting opportunity, and we are looking forward to delivering and building relations with even more stakeholders.

‘Our creative, personalised approach to delivery will help to improve people’s self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing and will enable them to make healthy choices.’

Westcliffe House and the community outreach service are commissioned by Rochdale Council. Referrals to the service can be made by contacting the service directly on 01706 377 197.
