About us

The Vulture Club was formed by a group of local West Cumbrian volunteers who through their own working experience and participation within the field of addiction and recovery, felt that there was a real need to provide contextual support to people who were trying to recover from substance addiction.  It is very hard to stop taking substances, its even harder to stay off them - Vulture Club recognise the importance of a maintained recovery.

The use of art and cultural pursuits as diversionary activities prompted the name of Culture Vultures that quickly became Vulture Club.

Our combined experience recognised a need for assistance and support for individuals with emotional issues who were having significant difficulty engaging in the larger community, when often isolated in a vulnerable and risky environment.

We were lucky enough to win a prestigious award for our services to our community at an early stage of our development, we have since had 2 High Sheriff awards for work within the community.

We play an active role with liaising with other support agencies and statutory services.  We also provide advocacy and representation at benefit Tribunals.  Our services are built around our members need not the other way round.

Vulture Club currently consists of experienced trustees and facilitators that can offer contextual, emotional and compassionate support. 

Our team includes many whom have travelled the long journey of recovery and wish to share their positive experiences with helping others in the community.

We have undertaken compassion focused trauma therapy and are skilled in many areas of social support and encouraging personal development.
