Weʼre raising £100,000 to provide addiction recovery and mental health support free of charge. And to expand the free workshops and support groups to other areas.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who helped us raise the first £5000 to apply for charity status. Our application was submitted on Saturday 26th May 2018 - the fourth anniversary of the day I lost my twin brother Rob Hill. And I'm so pleased to report that on 17th December 2018 we were granted charitable status. Our official charity registration number is: 1181220.
This charity and the work it does is dedicated to Rob. And my life's mission now is to help people beat addiction and get back their lives and to prevent families suffering the terrible tragedy we did.
The focus of the work is addiction recovery. Addiction to substances such as alcohol, nicotine, drugs, sugar and addiction to activities such as over-spending, gambling, over-eating and more. What I teach also helps people with anxiety, stress and depression.
The Rob Hill Foundation will provide addiction recovery services to people most in need. I have run a free weekly drop-in addiction workshop and support group in Sidcup since April 2016, and given people my one-to-one support most of the time without charge for the first two years. I have printed and distributed thousands of copies of my 7 Day Beat Addiction booklet free of charge.
All the work was funded by me. However, in order to expand and be able to continue to offer some services for free or on a not for profit basis to those really in need, people on low incomes and benefits, homeless people and the young and vulnerable ...we now have The Rob Hill Foundation.
The model of recovery I teach has helped hundreds of people get their lives back, free from addiction. But I need to reach many more and this funding will allow me to do that.
The plan is to expand the Sidcup workshop to accommodate the growing number of people who have started coming. And then reach out with workshops in other areas.
We will also be engaging in projects to help homeless people; getting involved in initiatives that will raise awareness of the issues that homeless people face - a big part of that being addiction and mental health conditions. And finding ways to collaborate and deliver the addiction recovery programme, with a view to preventing homelessness and helping those who would like the help, to get back on their feet.
The workshop and support groups we run welcome people with ALL types of addictions, as well as those with compulsive behaviours, phobias and other mental health issues - nobody is left out and nobody is turned away.
We've helped people beat addiction to the hardest drugs, to alcohol and to nicotine as well as helping people deal with anxiety and stress, and to eat better, lose weight, conquer phobias such as flying or using lifts and generally empower people to have a better quality of life.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO!
I need your support to do this. Please give what you can. It doesn't matter how much - it is all going to be well used to support people to escape addiction and to deal with mental health issues. And please share this as much as you can to friends and family.
