About Open Road Visions

Open Road is a drug and alcohol addiction support charity operating in Essex and Medway.

Our mission is to empower and support individuals, families and communities through their journey to recovery from the harmful effects of drugs, alcohol and steroids.

Open Road has a number of centres across Essex and Medway as well as carrying out work and providing support in the community.

Every year we support thousands of people through to recovery through one to one and group support.

Our renowned SOS Buses can be seen out and about on Friday and Saturday nights in Colchester and Chelmsford supporting the night time economy and at festivals. The support on board by our volunteers reduces demand on Emergency Services and saves the NHS over £250'000 every year through a reduction in hospital admissions.

Open Road also supports the community with:

  • Criminal justice services including the Essex Appropriate Adult Service, Women's support service, Substance misuse mentoring service, Cookham Wood YOI substance misuse support, and Military Corrective Training
  • Young people's service in Medway
  • S.W.E.A.T - Steroid support service across Essex.
  • Needle Exchange provision - encouraging the safe usage and disposal of injecting equipment.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
