Sheffield Alcohol Support Service

Sheffield Alcohol Support Service

Sheffield Alcohol Support Service (SASS) forms part of Project 6. Project 6 is a registered charity (1173006) and limited company (3430925), governed by a board of trustees.

SASS' projects are all designed to work towards the aim of enabling people to change their lives through a range of specialist alcohol, drug and family services. They complement each other, with an overlap of services providing people with access to the most relevant support no matter what route they were originally referred through.

  • The Alcohol Recovery Community – uses an asset-based community model to bridge the gap between treatment and the outside world. The service provides activities with a focus on: peer recovery support; health and wellbeing; lifestyle and independence; training and development.
  • Waypoint – provides training, development and consultancy to inspire excellence in working with vulnerable groups. We use solution focussed, compassionate and personalised approaches to develop memorable training. We believe that even the most difficult and stuck behaviour can change; we offer you the skills that can make a real difference to your organisation, to the people you work with, to your own career. Waypoint offer short courses, accredited qualifications and tailored in-house courses.
  • Families Together -  a specialist, therapeutic intervention service for families who are facing challenges in meeting the needs of their children. We support families where the child’s social worker/family intervention worker has child protection concerns regarding the child remaining safely in the family home. By focusing on the family’s strengths, we support the whole family to make positive changes around their child’s wellbeing.
  • Drink Wise, Age Well - a national project that provides a preventative and responsive approach to addressing alcohol use in the over 50’s.  SASS leads the Prevention and Campaigning Team in Sheffield who aim to increase awareness of alcohol and healthy ageing through tailored workshops and alcohol brief interventions sessions, campaigns, information and community events.
