Fast 4wd

fast fwdCommunity CVS runs Fast 4wd to help service users who are engaged in treatment or who are in recovery from substance misuse, to help others in their community.

Community CVS first developed the Fast 4wd Project in 2006 to help remove barriers that were preventing people who were engaging in treatment for substance misuse from getting involved in their community.

We set up Fast 4wd to help people in their recovery and to use their capabilities and potential in their communities.

We offer the following services:

  • Recruit & train a bank of Recovery Support Volunteers to work within the Substance Misuse Sector within the Blackburn with Darwen area.
  • Connect people who are in recovery with community and mutual groups in their localities,
  • Empower people in recovery to set up community and recovery initiatives of their own
  • Develop new accessible volunteering and positive activities within the borough that allow individuals who are engaged in treatment and recovery to become integrated with other members of the community, thus challenging stigma and isolation

We have close working partnerships with criminal justice, housing, health, employment agencies to provide support for wider life issues for service users.
