Reliance experiences the problems associated with drug taking and homelessness every day, in particular in our work with prisoners, in custody suites and elsewhere, and is a long time supporter and partner of charities in this field with strong links to Crime Concern, Addaction, CrimeStoppers and Restorative Solutions. We are delighted to welcome the Bethany Christian Trust to this list.
