- From the section Coventry & Warwickshire
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."
