Cash grant for Leamington Spa drug service ESH Works

A social enterprise which supports drug addicts in Warwickshire has secured £155,000 from the Government.

Royal Leamington Spa-based ESH Works Ltd, founded four years ago by three recovering addicts, has received the grant from Public Health England.

It will use the money to help set up a clean house to help people overcome drug and alcohol problems.

ESH Works was among 67 groups across the UK to receive a share of the £10 million central funding pot.

Chief executive Paul Urmston said: "This moves ESH Works another step closer to making the first peer-supported clean house in Warwickshire a reality."
