Addiction Connection Leeds (ACL)

UPA chairs a small network of initiatives, all of whom have a Christian ethos and are working in the field of addiction called Addiction Connection Leeds (ACL). The network seeks to bring 5 initiatives together so that project managers can share information and ideas with each other. The network also seeks to help these Christian based projects engage with the wider city including the new NHS and addiction structures in Leeds.

In September 2013 and 2015 we held evenings which allowed all 5 projects to briefly share what it is they do to help tackle addiction. Please see the video link for the highlights of their talk.


Jackie Hird speaks about the Joanna Project which works to tackle prostitution in the city.
