Medway Time to Change – provided by Open Road
The Medway Time to Change service is operated by Open Road. Open Road is a leading charity in East Anglia with over 27 years experience supporting people of all ages who have struggled with drugs and alcohol addiction, their families, carers and the local communities.
The Time to Change project is a new service in Medway specifically created to support people as they move on with their recovery after successfully completing the clinical element of their treatment with Turning Point. Time to Change can support people back into employment, training and education or simply help them make positive, and meaningful life changes.

Carers FIRST is a not for profit organisation supporting people who look after a relative or friend who due to ill health, physical or mental illness, disability, frailty, or addiction, cannot manage without their support. They provide information, advice, guidance, emotional support, training and activities, giving carers an opportunity to have a break from their caring role and help them to get the support they need.
AMAT (Ashdown Medway Accommodation Trust)
AMAT is a direct (rapid) access hostel offering supported accommodation which is intensively managed.
This means that a person can attend their offices and once they have completed a referral interview with the Duty Manager they could be accommodated the same day.
AMAT is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The office is manned from 08.30 to 00.30; there is an on-call service that covers 00.30 to 08.30, which is facilitated by staff living on site.
