Our online Impact Report highlights some of our unique insights, actions and achievements from 2016.  

Did you know that-

  • 23% of our service users have been in care as children (compared to less than 1% of the general population)
  • 46% of our service users had mums or dads in addiction
  • 19% of our service users have no qualifications compared to 7.6% of the national average

For the last six years we have been asking our service users about their lives before they came into treatment with us. We started our ‘Footprints’ survey because we knew that if we were really going to help we needed to understand people in the context of their past, present and hopes for the future.

So, with that information and our passion for recovery we set to work to develop approaches that support people to address their addiction and build a life that is positive, meaningful and happy. This year's impact report looks at the results from our Footprints survey and shines a light on some of the great work that Phoenix has been doing as a response.

"I hope you enjoy reading about some of the ways we have put our passion and belief in recovery to work to demonstrate that people can and do recover. "  - Karen Biggs, Chief Executive, Phoenix Futures.
