Visit our Drop-in
You will be welcomed into a safe place where you can take some time out, be yourself, have a chat and some fun, food and friendship. You can get a cuppa, clothes, food, prayer, and support. Men are not allowed into the Drop-in during these sessions
3A Upper George Street, Luton.
The Drop-in is opposite the Town Hall next to Treatz ice cream parlour. You need to come through the archway next to Treatz and to the door in the courtyard.
If you have an exploiter, he can get help through our new Flint programme here
What women say about Azalea
‘The Drop-in has meant I know you care. I’ve been beaten up badly by my pimp and I kept on thinking and praying I would get there. I want somewhere I can be safe. Here I can plan to leave this lifestyle, and find myself. I had no food and you fed me.’
"I know I wouldn’t have gotten this far without God’s love for me so wonderfully expressed through the love of the Azalea team. I am eternally grateful for all their help, support and love.”
"Without you guys, I’m terrified to think what might of become of me if you weren’t there. So thank you for the love, the food, cuddles, clothes, lovely space, talks, prayers...I could go on and on. I’m better because of you guys – ALL of you – every single one."
Azalea is starting a daytime Recovery Programme to help women move on in life.
The Recovery Programme will be faith-based, using solution-based therapy, motivational interviewing techniques, the 12 step programme and SMART.
It will work on:
- Health - Abstaining from alcohol, drugs and non-prescribed medication. Managing and abstaining from self-harming, being able to make informed healthy choices.
- Home - having and keeping a stable and safe place to live.
- Purpose - conducting meaningful daily activities and gaining the independence, income and resources to participate in society.
- Community - having positive relationships and social networks.
What style will it take?
- Individual-led support plans
- Flexible and person-centred
- One-to-one sessions to set goals
- Weekday group sessions
The Recovery Programme is founded on a hope that the challenges and conditions caused by addictive behaviours can be overcome. We aim to support each woman to build on their strengths, talents, coping abilities, resources and inherent values to work through and maintain their recovery.
Could it be for you? We'd love to work with you! If you'd like to join the programme, please email email@example.com for more details.
