WY-FI Project

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence | Supporting people with multiple needs


WY-FI in numbers…

We’ve got some WY-FI numbers to share, that show how we’re helping people with multiple and complex needs to start living more meaningful lives.

They include…

  • A 90% reduction in beneficiary A&E visits when they are being supported by WY-FI
  • 168 grants worth £22,000 given to beneficiaries to make a house feel like a home.

Check out more numbers on our handy info-graphic.


Therapeutic Sober Living Pilot – Kirklees

Over the last 12 months, The Basement Recovery Project has been developing a pilot therapeutic treatment model for a 24/7, peer-led, sober living house in Kirklees, called Freedom House.
Sober Living

The house is now fully occupied and has delivered some outstanding outcomes. We have achieved our main objective of offering a comprehensive programme of recovery support for individuals (for whom no housing would be a barrier) to continue their recovery journey in their natural community surroundings.

The last 12 months have seen Freedom House offer all of the predicted interventions, plus an assortment of unexpected outcomes.

More about The Basement Recovery Project (TBRP)

The Basement Recovery Project’s therapeutic community living programme, in conjunction with WY-FI, continues to go from strength to strength, supporting women to achieve and maintain abstinence-based recovery in their own community.

Alongside WY-FI, the previous twelve months have seen TBRP successfully deliver on and complete a 12-month pilot scheme to support the provision of abstinent based therapeutic community living for females in Kirklees.

Where do you reside?

Alone in the crowd with drink for company.
Friends been drowning in the bottle battling insanity.
Suicidal ideation failing to see the point of it all.
Doing all I can but feeling the impact is quite small.
Still breathing today, left at hospital getting help.
So many emotions swirling causing us to yelp.

It’s a battle just being. Sometimes too much to bear.
Losing point of it all & sight of those who care.
What to share?
How can we together repair?
Life can be really hard & certainly isn’t fair.
So many things scare & exhaust & excite & divide.
Fraction of self exposed with SO MUCH left inside.
Desire to run & hide.
In who can we confide?
So many rules to engagement by which it’s difficult to abide.
Home is where the heart is but where do you reside?
Life’s about the journey some have a VERY bumpy ride.
