We are delighted to announce that The Ley Community and Phoenix Futures will be working together to develop a new residential treatment service on the grounds of The Ley Community in Oxford.
The service will build on the two organisations’ common history of delivering the Therapeutic Community model. Phoenix and The Ley Community are pioneers in residential treatment in the UK and colleagues in the European Federation of Therapeutic Communities.
With a combined history in addiction treatment of more than 100 years, this is a unique opportunity. Over the last 10 years 40% of residential treatment services have closed due to restricted funding. In light of the additional funding, and commitment to residential treatment under the UK Drug Strategy, we believe now is the ideal time to create this partnership.
‘We are excited to be working with Phoenix to ensure that The Ley Community’s legacy will carry on. We share a common passion for supporting people who find it impossible to access the range of support they need in the wider community. This new service will offer hope for some of the most vulnerable people in society ‘
Darren Worthington, Chief Exec The Ley Community
‘This is a partnership with huge potential. This new service will offer vital additional residential treatment beds and life-saving and life changing opportunities for recovery. We will be working hard to honour the legacy of The Ley Community and support people across the UK whose needs are not being currently met.’
Karen Biggs, Chief Exec Phoenix Futures
