• About us

    Providing hope through support

    Slider Border

    Southmead Project is a registered charity providing free therapeutic and practical support to adults who were abused as children and have turned to drugs, alcohol and other ways of self-harming as a consequence of that trauma.

  • How we do it

    Offering a range of coping skills

    Slider Border

    Drugs, alcohol misuse and self-harming are ways in which some people who were abused have managed to cope. By getting help and support from the charity, these ‘coping skills’ can be replaced by others that are just as helpful but far less harmful.

  • Abuse counselling

    Helping you to reclaim your life

    Slider Border

    The abuse counselling service is available to those aged 16 years and over and offers a safe space and environment where professional counsellors will listen and explore ways of helping people to reclaim lives affected by trauma and abuse.
