Corporate Volunteering Days

We have welcomed two corporate groups this summer to The Nehemiah Project to take part in group volunteering days. In June we welcomed Talbot Underwriting to The Chase for a day of gardening, they kindly brought lunch for both volunteers and residents and enjoyed listening to our volunteers talk about their time at Nehemiah. In July we also welcomed Hays Recruitment, they heard speeches from three residents about their own recovery, and then spent the afternoon helping with DIY tasks around the house and also worked on the garden.

Volunteer Activities

In April we welcomed volunteers, residents, trustees and some of our Marathon runners for an Open House lunch and gardening session. It was so lovely to see everyone together supporting Nehemiah. Volunteers mowed the grass, got rid of lots of weeds, and planted Geranium bulbs. Volunteers from the Companions of The Order of Malta also joined us at the end of June where more gardening took place, and they got to hear from two of our residents about their journey with Nehemiah. We also had residents taking part in a healthy eating workshop at the beginning of July, making a delicious vegetable gnocchi! If you have a green thumb, or want to show off your skills in the kitchen do get in touch with Alex ( to find out more about volunteering opportunities!

Summer Graduation

We celebrated our resident’s graduation ceremony at Nehemiah's Croydon House on Thursday, May 25th, a fantastic achievement for the seven men who will now start the transition into Nehemiah's second stage houses.

Throughout the programme, these residents have demonstrated unwavering commitment and determination in overcoming their addictions and addressing the challenges that held them back. Working closely with their key workers, they have successfully completed the 12-week programme, equipping themselves with essential life skills and forging a new path towards a brighter future.

The graduation ceremony was an inspiring and heart-warming event, where guests heard from the graduating residents as well as previous graduates who came along to tell them how Nehemiah had helped their lives. Guests were also treated to a musical performance by two of the residents, a real treat for all in attendance.

The event shined a spotlight on the personal journeys of the residents themselves, as they shared their stories and aspirations for the future. The presence of their families, Nehemiah staff, trustees, and friends of the residents added to the celebratory atmosphere, marking the importance of community support in the journey to recovery and transformation.


London Marathon

We had ten fantastic volunteers running for The Nehemiah Project in this year’s London Marathon. We wish to congratulate them all on this incredible achievement. Together they helped raise over £9,000 for TNP. If taking on this exciting challenge interests you, do get in touch about running next year! We are also currently recruiting runners for The Royal Parks Half Marathon in October, places are limited so get in touch now to secure your place! Take a look below at some of the runners with their medals.
