Who are NERAF?

Achieve with NERAF is a charity based within Sunderland that works with individuals and their loved ones who are affected by Substance or Alcohol Misuse.

Are you Affected by Substance or Alcohol Misuse?

If you feel you may have an issue with alcohol or substance misuse we can support you by offering information, advice, advocacy and emotional support. You can also have access to one-to-one, telephone and peer group sessions delivered by our Recovery Coaches and supported by Volunteers. We can also offer support finding solutions to issues with accommodation, finances or physical and mental health issues.

Do you have a loved one who is Affected by Substance or Alcohol Misuse?

If you have a loved one with substance and alcohol issues and require information or support for yourself please contact us to see how we can help.  We have support groups for friends and families or one to one support.  Even if it is just to ask us a question you are unable to answer, whatever it may be, we are here to support you.

Are you a Commercial Organisation or Business?

If you are a commercial organisation or business, we can offer training & awareness about alcohol and substance misuse and its effects.  We can also help with your policies and procedures & provide you with information on referrals to specialist agencies.  Please contact us for further information.

Are you looking to work in partnership with NERAF to support our Communities?

Our team coordinate our own services and arrange relevant services offered by agencies in support areas such as Drug and Alcohol statutory services, housing, employment, mental health, financial, domestic abuse and family support. In this way we offer a ‘one stop shop’ of support and assistance.  If you would like to inform us about the services or support you offer that can mutually compliment our services please get in touch.

Our work has been supported in recent years by Awards for All and Sunderland City Council.
