EDAS is a local provider caring for the local community to help transform the lives of people affected by substance misuse problems. EDAS offers a wide range of bespoke packages to help individuals recover from their dependency along with family and concerned other support, including cares groups, 1:1 appointments and various group support.

"In these difficult economic times funding for our services is becoming more and more difficult to source."
 - Sharon Sheppard, EDAS Clinical Lead

EDAS headquarters in Poole is a place for clients to gather and socialise, but over the years, the grounds had become overgrown and unusable. The group managed to gather a 'hit squad' of able volunteers in order to tackle the problem. However, the issue of waste disposal threatened to throw a spanner in the works.

HIPPO donated a free MIDIBAG and collection in order to ensure the project was able to go ahead. The Hit Squad moved in and managed to fully renovate the area - it is now being used to its full potential!

"Thank you very much for your support!"
- Vienna, EDAS
