The Team "We started working with LFTW in 2008, and they have resourced, equipped and encouraged us as we stepped out in working with disadvantaged groups across Sheffield.  They understand and appreciate the issues experienced by front-line churches and charities working with people with addictions".
Andy Niblock, Restore Ministries Sheffield

our ethos

"Recovery is a process not an event… although there may be events along the way”

Living-Recovery believe in combining the best spiritual wisdom and insight with the latest in professional developments applied to real situations on the ground. This ensures all our material is balanced, effective and life transforming both for workers, students and those they are supporting. With Christ at the centre Living-Recovery believes the church should be at the heart of its community meeting the needs of the most vulnerable around them.
