The Sorted Project

The Sorted Project supports people who are recovering from substance dependency and/or mental health problems

The Project’s work aims to support people into activities which they find meaningful and positive. The Sorted Project also works with groups in a range of settings including Recovery Hubs which focus on confidence, self-esteem, managing recovery and developing personal plans for progress. One to one support is available to help people achieve this.

A weekly group offers a safe space for positive peer support. The group meets on board a wide beam barge on the Union Canal. The group also offers opportunities for training and volunteering opportunities and support into other Canal based volunteering.

The Sorted Project is promoting healthy active lifestyles through the Edinburgh Leisure Get Active Programme. A peer support worker meets people in recovery weekly for a gym and swim group. This meets on Mondays at 2.00 pm, outside the Commonwealth Pool. Please get in touch before coming along to the group.
