PROPS is a specialist service for people whose lives are affected by someone else’s alcohol or drug use.
We understand how difficult it can be supporting someone who uses alcohol or drugs. We understand how stressful, worrying, upsetting, and isolating it can be.
We offer practical help and emotional support to make life easier for you and your family.
We listen, help you to problem solve and develop new skills.
Where appropriate, we will build a team around your family and may invite other services to be part of this team helping you to achieve your goals.
JET was originally established in 2001 as part of Newcastle City Council’s ESOL (English for Speakers of other Languages) service.
We became a registered charity in April 2006. It was recognised that there was a gap in provision to help those who were either from the settled ethnic backgrounds in the City, or newly arrived in the UK, to overcome some of the challenges they faced in searching for work, suitable training and work experience, as well as integrating into society and indeed the their local communities.
Search is one of the oldest voluntary projects in the West of Newcastle, set up in the mid 1970’s to help the welfare of local pensioners.
Originally we were a single-worker project offering advice to callers and visits to the housebound. Clients came from word of mouth, not Social Services.
We have a long history of being part of the neighbourhood on Adelaide Terrace. Our aim was working together with local residents and neighbourhood groups to make Benwell and then the whole of the West of Newcastle a better place to live.
