Treasures Foundation helps former female addicts to find the treasures in themselves, preparing them for rich, fulfilling lives through supported accommodation.

The aim of the foundation is to break the cycles of addiction and offending behaviour with the primary purpose to deliver a service that makes a real difference to real lives.  We will help individuals recover from substance misuse to shape and sustain positive and rewarding lives.

All individuals who have substance misuse issues should have access to support that is effective in changing lives.  We will support vulnerable women on release from prison to more effectively meet their care needs, facilitating rehabilitation and re-housing, leading to independent living and breaking the cycles of crime and addiction.


We offer 3 houses with 3 bedrooms each and space for up to 8 women at a time. Activities include:

  1. Transition support from prison/criminal justice system into our houses and support for when they leave. (Frequency: 8 rooms with an average of 12 women helped per year)
  2. 1-2-1 support. This includes support in accessing services like recovery courses, training courses, volunteer placements, linking into community support groups and building personal and social life skills. (Frequency: Daily)
  3. Independent Living groups. Meetings with residents and former residents. Frequency six days a week.
  4. Community outreach. Supporting work in prisons/community groups. (Frequency: at least weekly).
