Redbank Recovery Accommodation

Providing accommodation in Manchester for people with substance misuse issues

A recovery-based accommodation service

Red Bank Supported Accommodation provides a recovery focused accommodation service for people in Manchester who have had a history of misuse of substances or alcohol, have been through detoxification, are abstinent and wish to remain so.

We work closely with other agencies to undertake a full assessment of need. We develop a structured Support Plan with each of our service users.

Living confidently

Red Bank Accommodation gives support to develop the skills required to successfully live independently within the community.

This service is able to support you if you:

  • Are aged 18 or over
  • Are entitled to live in Manchester
  • Have undergone clinical detoxification from alcohol or illicit substances (where required)
  • Are on 30ml or less of methadone (or subutex equivalent) and intend on reducing
  • Are committed to personal abstinence from illicit substances and alcohol
  • Are willing to engage in support

We provide housing related support to individuals to develop the skills required to manage homes, live confidently, remain in recovery and ultimately achieve independent living.

We deliver mandatory group-based activities to promote health and wellbeing, employability, active-citizenship and Humankind’s Recovery ‘Progression’ model provides group recovery-orientated programmes. This is alongside positive activities, for example: computer groups, gardening, quiz nights
