Do you offer a detox?
This is not available at the current time. Please contact us and we can help point you in the direction of services that can assist.
What does it mean that you are a Christian programme?
We are a programme with a Christian ethos, and all staff members are Christian. We accept men of all faiths and none, recognising freedom of choice in faith, as in other areas. We offer the option to attend a variety of churches in the area so residents will be able to experience a range of different services. There are two other Christian activities during the week: an ‘Exploring Faith’ group and an informal ‘Fellowship’ meeting. No-one is under any pressure to take an active part if they do not want to, but everyone is asked to respect these times and others taking part in them.
What does a typical day on the programme involve?
The programme consists of a blend of work-therapy, interactive groups, one-to-one counselling, key-working and personal development time. No two days on the timetable are the same but, over the course of a working week, these elements will be included along with opportunity for recreation and exercise.
Can I have contact with my family?
You can have access to the house phone, your mobile phone and to social media at certain times of the day to stay in touch with loved ones. They will also be able to visit you at Yeldall Manor by arrangement, and you will be able to have time away from Yeldall as you progress through the programme.
Can I smoke at Yeldall Manor?
Yes. Smoking and vaping are allowed in designated outside areas only.
How are residents’ places funded?
Some residents’ places are still funded through the ‘traditional’ route of the drug or alcohol team in their area. In addition, we accept people who are privately funded, by themselves, their family or their church. For the increasing number of men who cannot obtain funding through any of these routes, our Good Samaritan Fund is able to sponsor the places of a number of men, giving them a chance that they would not otherwise have. In all cases, we expect our residents to contribute financially to their own recovery, normally through a proportion of their Universal Credit. In addition, we support residents in claiming Housing Benefit to cover the accommodation element of our costs.
About 50% of our total costs, including the entirety of the Good Samaritan Fund, are funded through the kind support of many churches, trust funds and individuals, without whom we simply would not be able to function as we do.
Will you keep my personal information safe?
Yeldall Manor is committed to protecting all personal information we obtain about you. We will only collect and use your personal information for carefully considered and legitimate purposes. When we use your personal information, we will always consider if it is fair and balanced to do so and whether it would be within your reasonable expectations that we would use your data in this way.
