Aspire Café

Aspire Drug Treatment Service - a community recovery resource supporting people who misuse drugs

Aspire logo

The Aspire community team is using the Fletton Centre Café premises for their community-based drug outreach programme on Monday afternoons. This drop-in session is open from 1-4pm every Monday, except school and Bank Holidays.  The Aspire community team hopes Aspire Café will become a hub used by clients in the final stages of recovery, but also as a local drop-in for clients and new support enquiries. The Aspire community team hopes this café will be one of many hubs across the city, in an attempt to provide community-focused recovery for their clients. Aspire Café at the Fletton Centre is the first in this new venture.

Aspire Café aims to allow clients who have misused drugs to continue their recovery locally, in a relaxed atmosphere and pleasant environment, without the additional pressures that visiting the main Bridge Street centre might bring.

To support this vision of growth in community cohesion and development, Life Church volunteers serve biscuits, tea and coffee to the Aspire community team and their clients, and demonstrate support through a friendly smile or conversation, as required.  Both Aspire and Life Church hope to further build community by providing a listening ear if and when necessary, but most of all by providing a friendly face for those who have encountered the harsher side of life.

We're looking at future opportunities to develop more ways to serve this need, so why not come and talk to us if you have any thoughts?
