Hawkspring is a drug and alcohol support service offering a holistic approach to recovery, for all members of the family. We support people in South Bristol and surrounding areas from our base in Hartcliffe.

It is a vital assessable support service for the whole family; we help the user, the carers & loved ones and the children who are living with substance misuse.

We have supported 900 people over the last 18 months; the demand for our services is the highest it’s been in 12 years.   We deal with crisis situations every day and give out food vouchers and use of telephone for local people to make important phone calls, as well as supporting people with benefits, housing, debts, mental health issues etc. This service has a good trusted relationship with south Bristol communities and if we close our doors on the 28th August it will have a massive affect on the local community, we set up personal plans and stick with people throughout their recovery journey.

This much needed centre is at the heart of saving lives and trying to build better communities. The closure of Hawkspring will have a devastating impact in Bristol and the local area. 

Please join us in signing the petition to show your support in trying to avert this travesty.
