At Nehemiah we work hard to re-build the lives of vulnerable men who want to change their lives for the better. But we can’t do this on our own. Our staff, volunteers, partners and supporters work together to transform the lives of Nehemiah Residents.
Please join us as we make a difference in the lives of our Residents and their families.
Nehemiah's Christmas Appeal
With just £15 you can provide a hearty Christmas dinner and a present for someone like Tim!
Tim’s life started to spiral out of control in his 30s, following a traumatic childhood. He turned to drugs and alcohol as a way of dealing with his past. And over time he lost his family, his successful business and ended up in prison.
Last year Tim came to one of our Nehemiah homes and enrolled in our 12-week recovery and rehabilitation programme. This programme changed his life.
Right now, following the successful completion of our programme, Tim is beginning to think about his future. He is seeking to reconnect with his family and to find employment.
Will you give just £15 today to enable a Nehemiah resident like Tim to enjoy his first Christmas outside of prison for many years?
Here are some of the things your generosity can make possible:
Your gift today will show our Residents that they are not alone in the world. That someone cares for them and is cheering them on in their journey of recovery and rehabilitation.
And you can enjoy your celebrations too, knowing that you have done something to help someone break free from addiction and rebuild their life.
Will you help make Christmas special for someone like Tim?
Yes! I will make someone like Tim feel loved and hopeful this Christmas
Monthly gifts are vital to Nehemiah’s work. Join our other generous supporters who believe that everyone can change their life with the right support.

Leave a Legacy
Would you like to leave a legacy which transforms lives for the future? By remembering us in your will, you will be supporting the services that men go through in order to bring about real and lasting change.
You can do this in a number of ways: for example by leaving a residue of your estate, a fixed amount or money or even certain assets. You can ask for advice on more possibilities by a solicitor helping you with your will.
If you feel there is specific way that you would like to leave a legacy to us, or for more general information, please get in touch with Lorna on 020 8773 7414 or email email@example.com
How Your Support Helps
Our Residents have a history of addiction which has severely affected them, their families and the wider community. We enable these men to break this cycle of addiction, offending and homelessness, and provide the professional and life-changing support required to secure a new future.
The national average for remaining abstinent for one year is 30%; at Nehemiah 74% of Residents remain abstinent. Nearly 50% of released prisoners reoffend within 12 months and for London prisons this figure increases to 60%. At Nehemiah, as far as we know, only 5% of the men we have worked with in the last five years have reoffended.
We would not be where we are today without our incredibly supportive network of charitable trusts, companies, churches, community groups and individuals. We are keen to partner with churches that are passionate to see lives transformed, and be a part of supporting these men in different ways.
Opening the Door to a New Future
Our new Church Resource Pack is available and is designed to be flexible so that you can include The Nehemiah Project and a ‘New Future’ service in your worship and activities in a way that suits you and your church.
This is a fantastic way to engage your congregation in understanding how addiction, homelessness and being in prison can affect the lives of men living in our communities and how we can help them to re-build their broken lives.
However you get involved, we hope that your church will choose to learn more and feel moved to take action, to hold a collection, make a donation, or undertake some fundraising activities to transform lives.
Would you like us to come and give a church talk? We would love to come and share what we do and ways to get involved Please contact call 020 8773 7414
Our residents, and staff, need prayer on a daily basis as they journey in recovery. Sign up to receive our quarterly prayer letters by emailing Lois.
Undoubtedly, financial support makes a massive difference in enabling us to run our programme and support men daily. Would your church consider supporting us financially, either monthly, quarterly, or during special appeals? Visit our giving page or contact Lois for more information
There are so many ways to get involved which you can find out on our volunteers page. We are keen to get churches and community groups involved through events such as:
- Football tournaments
- Gardening/ refurbishment days
- Community lunches
- Fundraising events

For forty years now, Prisons Week has prepared prayer literature to enable the Christian community, through individuals and churches, to pray for the needs of all those affected by prisons: prisoners and their families, victims of crime and their communities, those working in the criminal justice system and the many people who are involved in caring for those affected by crime on the inside and outside of our prisons.
Prisons Week raises awareness and generates prayer. It motivates volunteers to step forward and give their time and gifts, in prisons and in their own communities. It provides an annual focus and reason for Christians to work together, building capacity and motivation to make a difference for people who are out of sight and often out of mind.
The Nehemiah Project is a Supporting Organisation of Prisons Week.
Prisons Sunday – the second Sunday in October – marks the beginning of the week of prayer each year, running through until the following Saturday.
