Welcome to Nehemiah

The Charity

Nehemiah has operated throughout lockdown for England, as we have adapted our processes to stay within the rules. All our houses are in operation - 

  • We are accepting referrals
  • We are delivering face-to-face interventions on a case-by-case basis
  • We are currently facilitating groups - some in person and socially distanced, some via Zoom

Depending on local infection rates and restrictions, our staff will vary our services to support the safety of everyone at Nehemiah

We know that right now recovery looks and feels different, and our aim is to support our Residents through these challenging times. As such, we are looking forward to receiving your referral.

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

Jimmy’s Story

I don’t want to re-offend. This is my last chance. It is all or nothing. I am using this opportunity the best I can, in order to better my life and those around me.

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.

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.

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.
