What we offer

Back On The Road provide opportunities for those experiencing addiction to gain work experience and community

Our services are people-focused, invested in helping individuals and adding to the community.

Back on the Road has supported more than 200 people in recovery by providing training in multiple skills, from metalwork to painting. Eight classic buses which have been displayed at Bridgeton have been transformed by our participants.

Staff at Back on the Road aim to provide an informal specialised alcohol and drug treatment support, encouraging participants to develop new skills and learn further about our community outreach work.

This programme is more than about grease and oil, it is about community and employability for participants too.” David MacDonald, Alcohol and Drug Partnership Senior Officer

The programme also offers support for participants interested in gaining qualifications through Glasgow Kelvin College SCQF Community Achievement Award Levels 4-7. The Community Achievement Awards are designed to support, recognise and accredit learning and achievement in a community setting. The framework of the Community Achievement Award encourages participants to work on their personal goals, to discuss their volunteer work at Back on the Road and to learn further about community-based development.

The Awards at SCQF level 4 support initial engagement with community activities, at SCQF levels 5 and 6 provide an effective support and supervision framework for volunteers and at SCQF level 7 support community engagement with service design. All participants can gain support from Back on the Road staff to support their studies.
