"The journey continues,
in fellowship and community"

 

Hope and Vision Communities provides supported, move-on accommodation for people who have successfully completed residential rehabilitation

All of our residents have a history of drug or alcohol misuse. Sometimes, they have turned to crime and often they have lost their family and friends. 
Transitioning to independent living can be overwhelming.
We help people who have shown a willingness to change. We help those who would like to continue their journey of recovery in a safe, suitable and supportive environment.

Cathy Dunbabin

Advisor

The charity is very close to my heart as I’ve seen first-hand within my own family that with the right support, energy and belief, that lives can be turned around and families reunited. When Tony first told me about Hope & Vision I knew instantly that through my business networking company Opendoorz, that I could help spread the word and introduce the charity to business owners. I’m a huge believer in giving back and doing even just a little bit to make someone smile every day.
