Our Mission is to promote recovery from alcohol abuse, to the benefit of the individual, family and friends and the wider community. We offer a full, structured programme to residential and non-residential clients in their early days free from alcohol.

News - March 5, 2018

"Our occupancy of the premises in Brockley Road will end soon as the area is scheduled for redevelopment. The City Council has been extremely generous in providing the premises free of rent since HHE started nearly six years ago and we gratefully acknowledge the generous support and commitment given over that time as well as their commitment to our ongoing operation.

The Trustees are researching alternative premises and the costs involved which we anticipate will significantly increase our dependence on grant funding and donations. A property has been found where we can rehouse our existing Brockley Road residents and we will hopefully finalise details shortly, so that we are able to move them, on or before closure.

It is not expected that there will be any impact on our Move On House in Baddow Road.

As part of the change we have re-visited our ethos and in the short term will be offering supported housing to our clients. This will include a small number of therapy and similar sessions but at a lower level than we currently provide. Regretfully, we have had to make the decision that we will be unable continue our service to non-resident day clients, after the closure of Brockley Road. Discussions across several areas including medium term funding opportunities, corporate sponsorship, and what opportunity there may be for closer cooperation with other relevant services, are ongoing but it is expected that as things stand at the moment, our services in Brockley Road will cease on May 18th 2018. Details of the support and administration we may be able to provide in the future are being developed in parallel to ensure that our current clients are safe, secure and supported.

Any questions should be addressed to our Chairman, Val Chiswell – val@hhe.org.uk or Gfraham Pooley, Director - graham@hhe.org.uk
