Kennedy St Foundation

Register your Interest

The Kennedy St Foundation is a peer led recovery charity that supports families, individuals and businesses affected by substance use disorder. We were founded by Kevin Kennedy (Curly from Coronation St) and Clare Kennedy to reach more people in the community that want to find out more about the journey of recovery and transformation.

The demand for our support has grown significantly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Overcoming problems with drugs, alcohol, addictive behaviours or mental health is hard at the best of times. It’s even harder if you can’t leave the house to access support. Social isolation, loneliness, shame and stigma are big factors for people drinking more and turning to drugs at any time. At a time when most of us are feeling more anxious than usual, more people are likely to struggle with mental health, drug, addictive behaviours like gambling or alcohol problems.

We are a small, start-up charity run entirely by volunteers and with limited funds.  

We are looking for a volunteer who can help us make short films. Could this be you?
