The Nelson Trust’s Hub Project is about to launch its latest community enterprise – The Sober Parrot. This will be Cheltenham’s first late night entertainment venue with a strictly alcohol-free offer. The project accompanies the Hub Bistro and the Hub Maintains, also run by The Hub in Gloucestershire. The Hub creates space for people to recover from addiction to drugs and alcohol. Through working together to overcome isolation, exclusion and loneliness they can help individuals fulfil their potential and benefit the community as a whole.
All the Hub enterprises have something in common; the majority of their volunteers are people in recovery from addiction who are gaining life skills, training and experience through the project to help them return to long term, paid employment. The project gives them the space and the support to make sure they are in the best position possible to be successful employees.
In order to realise this ambitious project, Marksteen Adamson brought together a wide variety of talented project partners.

The effects of drug and alcohol abuse and other addictions are far-reaching. Children in families where one or both parents are addicts are affected in a number of ways from neglect to poverty. School holidays can be a particularly stressful time for parents and children and days out, funded by The Big Cold Turkey Foundation, can provide a welcome break and memorable time between parents and children.
Give it up!
Whether it’s smoking, drinking too much, eating chocolate, overspending or even biting your nails, The Big Cold Turkey is here to help you show those nasty little habits who's boss. It’s time to take control of your life and give it up!
