Good for Nothing

How do we communicate our innovative, sustainable and resilient way of delivering social exclusion rehabilitation in a more effective way?

The Severn Project is a Community Interest Company founded by Steve Glover in April 2010 with the aim of creating a more effective and person centred model of drug and alcohol recovery.

The Project is designed to bridge the gap between treatment and social reintegration though a process of education, training and employment.

At the Severn Project we support socially excluded individuals – particularly those who are struggling or have struggled with the effects of substance misuse, ex offenders and those with low level mental health disorders. We believe that abstinence and effective living is an attainable goal for every person.

_“The Severn Project ticks all the right boxes. It is an innovative social enterprise that helps individuals recover from drug and alcohol dependency through practical horticultural training. And it transforms waste ground such as the site adjacent to Temple Meads into a thriving market garden. I strongly support their work and ethos. It’s a win win”

George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol
