The project received a grant of £4,980 which went towards providing support activities such as cricket, drama, art, creative writing and fishing, for those recovering from addiction.

CiR is a not for profit organisation based in Halifax but operating throughout Calderdale open to anyone who is interested in any aspect of recovery from a drink or drug problem. They have developed support networks to help individuals maintain their recovery as well as arranging community based opportunities such as volunteering, enterprise, participation and networking which also helps reduce the stigma attached to those affected by addiction.
