The SAOL Project was established in October 1995 as a partnership between the local community and key agencies/organizations as an innovative community development approach to working with local women drug users. The SAOL project is a person-centred, community based programme for women in treatment for drug addiction. It aims to create positive meaningful change in the women’s lives through an integrated programme of education, rehabilitation, advocacy, childcare provision (with a focus on early childhood education), progression and aftercare supports. The project’s ethos is informed by respect for the dignity of each woman.
