Personal development & training
We run a personal development and training centre for people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The New Hanbury Project (NHP) helps students take on life-changing training to support their long-term recovery and help them find a positive role in society.
“The NHP has given me a sense of self worth, made me focused, and given me a sense of belonging and structure.”Mark, woodwork student.
Many students are welcomed into the New Hanbury Project community straight from rehab. Throughout their time with us, students can also receive regular counselling to support their recovery programme.
Many residents from our residential recovery hostel, Acorn House enroll on our courses. Some former students are now employed by our social enterprises - Paper and Cup cafes and Restoration Station, our vintage furniture social enterprise.

“I used to think pleasure was found in a bottle. I have discovered it can be found in a pen or pencil - thank you, Hanbury.”Former NHP student.
The NHP runs over 30 classes in 20 different subjects including:
- Landscaping and gardening
- Furniture restoration
- Computers and the internet
- Cooking and nutrition
- Creative writing
"The Hanbury Project is what you want it to be really. For me it was like nursery, primary, secondary, college."
Eddy, former New Hanbury Project student.
