From Addaction to We Are With You

31 January 2020 Posted by

In February Addaction will change their brand and name nationally to We Are With You (or With You for short).

This change follows 18 months of research and consultation with service users, staff and volunteers and reflects the way they work with people experiencing issues with drugs, alcohol and mental health. We Are With You reflects the ethos of the organisation and their aim to focus on the person and help they offer, not the problem.

Over the last few years Addaction have focused on improving how people find and engage with support, and finding ways to motivate people to change and focus on relationships not problems. This led to the realisation that the name ‘Addaction’ did not reflect this.

Research showed that more people would access support if they changed their name. it was agreed that the new name should be more inclusive and reassuring while also appealing to all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.

As part of the rebrand they will be launching a new website which will include anonymous web-chat support and self-service advice. The website will be live in late February at http://www.wearewithyou.org.uk/
