Every day, 42,000 people work with CRI on their journey toward recovery
CRI is a social care and health charity working with individuals, families and communities across England and Wales that are affected by drugs, alcohol, crime, homelessness, domestic abuse and antisocial behaviour.
Our projects, delivered in communities and prisons, encourage and empower people to regain control of their lives and motivate them to tackle their problems.
