Drugs and alcohol
Finchale Group’s approach to supporting clients to resolve or manage an addiction is to address it in the context of the person, rather than dealing with it separately. They support clients to overcome these barriers to success by providing a single support package designed for that individual.
Having experience of supporting the Armed Forces community for 75 years, Finchale Group understands that the experiences of one family member can have an impact on the entire family – they offer support with all the family in mind, actively encouraging (where appropriate) partners or immediate family members to join clients during visits to their homes or communities.
Whether it’s a new venture alongside existing commitments, or you are ready to go it alone full-time, if a client dreams of starting a business, Finchale Group is behind them every step of the way with dedicated enterprise support.
