Welcome to Nehemiah

Nehemiah's first-stage houses are currently closed for the Coronavirus lockdown. We will endeavour to respond to all communications as soon as possible. We are unable to accept new admissions during this time, both for the safety of the current Residents and the prospective residents. We are, however, investigating the possibility of being able to accept new clients through a quarantine process, towards the end of June.

We provide a home and support for men with a history of addiction to transform their lives. Our programme is abstinence-based and provides structure and a supportive environment where men can address the root causes of their addiction, learning to make informed choices about their lives.

Our Residents invariably report multiple hardships, which often include care, homelessness and prison, becoming marginalised as the result of addiction. The Nehemiah Project has been providing this support for over 20 years in South London, but is open to men from anywhere in the UK - the most important thing is a man's genuine desire to change.

Stories of Transformation

Sam’s Story

This time last year I had nothing, no one, and nowhere to go. Now everything has changed. I have a new hope. I have a future.

Darren’s Story

I’ve graduated now and moved to the second phase ‘Moving On’. The house is very calm and I’ve started a three year plumbing course. I go to college three days a week.

Victor’s Story

I hope to start a business, to help people that were in my position, support places like Nehemiah, that supported me when I needed help. The Nehemiah is the only thing that’s worked.

Carl’s Story

I couldn’t believe it. My daughter contacted me recently. She found me. I asked her, ‘Do you want to get to know me?’ She said, ‘I don’t know, are you someone worth knowing?’ I think that I am now.
