Support Us

We rely on the support of others to help us achieve our ambitious vision in communities across the UK. There are three main ways to support us; Praying, Sharing, Donating.

Prayer – it can be challenging to work alongside those affected by addiction. Please pray for STAR as it seeks to equip churches and organisations, as well as praying for those working directly with those affected and the volunteers that are a vital part of this ministry.

Share – the more people that know about STAR the more STAR communities there will be to support those affected by addiction. Please follow us and share away



Donate – STAR is about changing the culture that exists around addiction services.  Your donations can help change lives. There are several ways you can donate to this work.

Direct giving | Gift aid | Donr text giving | Amazon SMILE
