On Saturday 10th August 2013, 18 people trekked 18 miles on a journey of sun, fun, plasters, walking and talking. We were taking part in the inaugural RAPt Recovery Trek, which was a chance to come together and celebrate recovery. Starting at HMP Everthorpe near Brough, the walk took us via woodland walks and quaint villages, from the scenic Humber coastal path to our final destination – a well-deserved BBQ at The Bridges, RAPt’s residential treatment unit in Hull. The walk took just under 8 hours, and everyone was grateful for the food upon completion.
RAPt publishes a position statement welcoming the principles behind the Government's Rehabilitation Revolution, and suggesting how these should be applied to improve services during a time of austerity.
We work with 20,000 people a year who have substance misuse issues. Many of those we help are some of the most challenging people in society, including prisoners and ex-offenders.
The Annual Review charts our development from a small but determined group of passionate individuals to an established professional organisation..
We are a charity committed to preventing crime and destructive behaviour, and helping people reach their potential. As well as other services, we are the largest provider of intensive drug treatment programmes in prisons.
