The ISIS Women’s Centre is a community based service transforming the lives of vulnerable women at risk of offending or reoffending; including those affected by drink and drugs.

Henna’s Story

"I would just say come in and meet the staff. they make you feel so much better about yourself. Its a lot about confidence building and nobody here judges you."

Women's Programme

The Nelson Trust provides a women-only programme to help women recovering from addiction and trauma

Our clients say...

"To be in an all-women project for me was the best because half the women there had been through similar things to me...I could be more open and honest there"

Rose Mahon and Niki Gould from ISIS and Diane Oatley from Gloucestershire Probation Trust collected the award from Sir David Brewer CMG, JP, Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant for Greater London

Residential Treatment

As part of our residential services Nelson Trust provides an exceptional abstinence-based treatment programme to achieve lasting and sustainable recovery.

Simon's story

“Physically I started to feel better very quickly. Emotionally and mentally I was a wreck. There are no quick fixes for that; it’s a process, a long process.”


Education, training and employment form a huge part of our residential and community based programmes. Learning, creativity and recreation are all key parts of recovery.

What clients say...

"It gave me hope and confidence that I could succeed out there living a normal life - that was really significant for me"
