The Nelson Trust

Overview of service

The Nelson Trust are experts in the provision of residential treatment and support for people with an addiction. This includes working with families and a dedicated residential addiction treatment provision for women who have been impacted by trauma, which includes a specialist programme for women with a history of sex working.

Our approach is trauma informed, relational and oriented to lifelong recovery. In addition to treatment, we provide education, training and employment services, resettlement housing, and community-based support for those who identify as being in recovery from addiction.

In the community, we provide a wide range of services, across Gloucestershire, Swindon & Wiltshire and Avon &
Somerset from our Women’s Community Centres. We work with justice involved women, women with mental
health issues, survivors of violence, abuse, and women who experience complex disadvantage.

Our experience of working with women has informed our service delivery response to their experiences.
Most of the women we work with have experienced abuse, trauma and sexual exploitation prior to entering

We believe that change is possible given the appropriate opportunity through individualised, holistic support and
trauma informed approaches that respond to their life experiences and current challenges.
