Forward’s Social Impact Report 2021-22

Forward has released its Social Impact Report for work conducted in 2021/22.

Forward’s fifth annual impact report, and the biggest and most comprehensive yet, it showcases our growing reach and expanding range of support, including:

  • 16,121 people directly supported across the country, with a further 3,729 people engaged and helped through our online chat support service, reaching and connecting the most isolated and disadvantaged groups in society;
  • Six service categories across 70 distinct projects, encompassing substance misuse, mental health, employment, support for people on probation, housing, recovery, and family and young people’s services;
  • With all service categories receiving consistently outstanding feedback from service users, partners, commissioners and inspectors.

As well as detailed breakdowns of each service area, you can read about a rich variety of special projects and initiatives including:

  • The Opportunity Escalator, supporting service users into training and employment;
  • Our unique range of abstinence-based recovery programmes, delivered in prison, residential settings, and in the community, both online and face-to-face;
  • Forward Connect, our network of recovery communities facilitating mutual aid and peer support;
  • Our M-PACT programme for families affected by addiction;
  • Enterprise Clubs, offering self-employment support and start-up funding;
  • The Worth programme for vulnerable women at risk of violence.

The report also provides details of our ground-breaking campaigns, Taking Action Against Addiction and More than My Past, which have had a huge impact on raising awareness of the challenges our clients face, breaking down stigma and building belief in recovery. Plus much more!
