Lifeline Bradford

Established in Manchester in 1971 Lifeline Project is a well established, voluntary sector agency providing drug and alcohol services for adults and young people, their families and their communities. For the last ten years Lifeline has provided a specialist alcohol service (The Piccadilly Project) located in Bradford city centre. This service is funded by Public Health England and delivers a wide range of structured support to people experiencing issues with alcohol misuse. More recently, we have started to work with diverse communities focusing on improving their health and wellbeing. This includes people with physical disabilities, older people and asylum seekers and refugees.
