Recovery from alcohol and drug dependence grant

Grants are now available to organisations in Derbyshire which support people to achieve and sustain recovery from drug or alcohol dependence.


You can apply for a single, non-recurring grant up to a maximum of £40,000 including VAT and all other costs. The activities or project proposed must cover a 2-year period, which we will only fund the first year.

Recovery is about individuals gaining and maintaining control of their lives, improving their physical and mental wellbeing, having purpose in life and being able to fulfil their potential.

Aim of the grant

The aim of the grant is to financially support organisations for a maximum of 12 months who can provide meaningful activity and positively increase social connects amongst people in or working towards recovery. Your organisation would need to be able to demonstrate how your project will help Derbyshire residents throughout treatment and into long-term recovery. This could be done in a number of ways and we welcome innovative ideas for providing this support.

This support could include activities to:

  • improve physical and mental health and wellbeing
  • provide purposeful activity, including education, skills training, volunteering and employment
  • help develop social networks
  • develop financial capability
  • develop positive thinking and effective decision making
  • build confidence and self-esteem

You'll also have to demonstrate how your proposal offers good value for money.

Who can apply

We want to encourage small, local organisations who can provide recovery support to bid for the funds. We've therefore imposed eligibility caps of £1 million on the annual income of the organisations who are able to bid for the grant.

Successful bidders will have to demonstrate they have funding in place, or plans to access other funding, for the second year of their project.

Organisations who are successful in obtaining a recovery grant for delivery in 2022 to 2023 will not be eligible to apply for a further recovery grant for the following year (2023 to 2024).
