Project Administrator

Create Strength Group (CSG): Founded in March 2015, Create Strength Group’s heritage lies in providing support to long-term chronic users of cannabis, spice and legal highs, Create Strength Group has evolved beyond this core focus to now provide essential information, advice, assistance, and support to anyone whose life is being affected by their own, or someone else’s, addictive behaviour.

We host dynamic mutual aid support groups in local venues and online where experience and advice are shared in a safe non-judgmental abstinence-based user led environment. We use, web, social media, and emerging technologies to promote our proven delivery model. We believe all drug users have the ability to turn their lives around and make positive, sustainable changes to their personal circumstances and the communities they live in.

The serious issues we address include anxiety and depression, sleep and insomnia, unemployment, homelessness and poverty, offending, and child custody issues. Our target members might be living isolated, anxious, and unfit for work or social activity.

We have consistently achieved transformative improvements in our hard to reach and seldom heard diverse cohort, supporting members with serious lifelong addictions, and have helped them grow and develop into volunteering, employment and general health and wellbeing.

The group's services include-mutual aid, training, and research.
