Former CAN Services

CAN was a registered charity which provides support to people with drug, alcohol and homelessness issues in the Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Oxfordshire areas.

CAN provided high quality support for more than 40 years and developed a lot of expertise in the field of substance use services. It built a strong track record of developing innovative partnerships with local NHS trusts and supporting people with complex needs.

In October 2016 its services became integrated into Aquarius, bringing together two like-minded charities with shared values around recovery, equality and innovation to strengthen the support we’re able to offer people with substance use issues in the Midlands.

CAN’s supported housing scheme has transferred to our formal partner, national mental health charity Richmond Fellowship, providing frontline help to single people in need of support to address housing issues, substance use, and repeat homelessness.
