The Beacons believe wholeheartedly that recovery is possible for anyone; our vibrant community of people with lived experience, support each other and reach out to those who need help. By investing in people with lived experience, we will demonstrate to the wider community the different side to addiction; a side which sees people rebuild their lives afresh with new friends, stronger family links and better prospects.
Why not check our our new Family Project ? Aimed at All In The Family, a partnership between My Support Day and Scottish Families and is funded by the CORRA Foundation. More details in the 'What we do' section under Family Support

As a result of the current COVID situation, The Beacons now offer Telephone Support from 10am-3pm Mon-Fri. Please call 01698 755926.
The Beacons does not offer a crisis intervention service. If you or someone you know needs urgent help or is at immediate risk call 111 or 999 or go to your nearest accident & Emergency Department.
At The Beacons we have a small team of dedicated volunteers who are involved in a range of activities, however, we need more of you! If you have lived experience and you’re interested in giving some of your time to help others, then we’d love to hear from you. In return you can engage in a volunteering programme that will provide you with your own Personal Development and Support Plan which includes training and any support you need to start towards gaining qualifications in areas such as, peer support, mentoring or coaching.
The people you meet as you come to The Beacons will be volunteers with lived experience; they will welcome you and make you feel at ease. You will never be pressured to do anything you don’t want to do. We want your Beacon to be a place where you can get to know people and enjoy an active social life.
