Extra £400k for drugs recovery charity

Broadreach House, a national drug and alcohol rehabilitation charity, has become the first third sector organisation to receive two investments from government loan fund Futurebuilders.

The Plymouth-based charity runs a training and support centre that was funded by an investment of £628,980 from Futurebuilders in 2005. It has now been awarded a second sum of £427,000 to help it buy another building and expand its range of services.

The latest investment will fund new day care for service users who are unwilling to have residential treatment. Rick Weeks, business director at Broadreach House, said: "We need to expand our services to meet demand."
