The Docherty Project

The Docherty Project offers specialist support and accommodation for men and women who need help maintaining accommodation because of difficulties related to alcohol use. We do not demand customers stop drinking alcohol; instead the project uses a model of 'harm reduction'. Individual 'drinking plans' are agreed with customers to stabilise alcohol consumption and sharing alcohol is discouraged. We offer support that promotes independence and improves health and well-being. Customers are supported to move on into permanent accommodation within 2 years.

The project offers three types of accommodation, including bedsits for people with higher support needs and flats within a main house which is staffed 24 hours a day. There are also a number of shared and single occupancy houses close to the main house visited by Housing and Wellbeing Officers.
