“The help I have received from Bridge has made me want to help others”


Bridge is a substance misuse programme based in Northampton but working throughout the county.

Primarily, Bridge is a mentoring programme that offers physical and other activities to its members either alongside or independent of a mentoring relationship.

About us

Our aim is to help Bridge members deal with their substance misuse by providing practical support in relation to social aspects which impact negatively on their lives.

We believe that people who have experienced substance misuse problems have a role to play in helping others.

How we help


For our mentoring programme, we recruit, train and supervise volunteers who have had drug or alcohol problems themselves, or close contact with people who have.

They act as mentors or support workers to clients with drug or alcohol problems.


As well as offering members the opportunity to engage with a mentor, we have developed, and constantly review, a programme of physical and other activities that are available to members.

We believe that physical and other activities can be a useful aid to recovery.
