Catalyst is a not for profit organisation providing services for people who experience wellbeing problems which may arise from traumas, often resulting in drug and alcohol use. We offer non-medical interventions in a friendly, accessible, professional and non-judgmental way. We believe people are their own best resource and we work to enable these skills to be activated and learn new ones.
With partnership working and offering flexible services in priority need areas in Surrey and beyond, we believe we can reduce the isolation and stigma faced by people experiencing challenges through a number of projects:
- Drug & Alcohol – The Integrated Services in Surrey (ISIS) programme works across Surrey with drug and alcohol users who want to embark on their own recovery and with people with complex needs who have disengaged with other services.
- Reach Out Counselling – This is a countywide service offering counselling and groups in all 11 Surrey Boroughs for people who are using drugs and/or alcohol and those affected by someone else’s use.
- The Welcome Project – As part of Community Connections, it works to improve mental wellbeing for people affected by anxiety, stress and depression through a range of activities and support in Guildford, Waverley, Surrey Heath, Farnham, Spelthorne, Runnymede, Woking and West Elmbridge in partnership.
- CIAG Work – This provides assertive outreach with people identified as problematic due to their anti-social behaviours. Intensive and robust interventions with individuals to reduce the impact on the community.
Catalyst helps drug and alcohol users to improve their lives on a daily basis by being available by offering accessible support and believes from its own evidence that people have the power to change given the right tools and help.
I would like to thank the outreach team for all their help and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you”
