The Malthouse Project

The Malthouse is a very unique project for up to 8 men who have completed a suitable recovery programme and recognise that they would benefit from further support within a structured residential setting.

The Malthouse is situated in the town of Uckfield in East Sussex. It offers good access to local amenities and strong community links.

This is an ideal place for reintegration into the community and the pursuit of meaningful activities, with low risk compared to a high-density urban environment.

We provide critical support at the right pace to ensure that Residents avoid relapse and are able to gain the skills and confidence essential for planning their future independence and reintegration.

There are two meetings of AA in Uckfield and there is a frequent bus service to Brighton, where there are many AA, NA, and CA meetings. There is a local adult education college, a swimming pool/gym, a cinema and the vast Ashdown forest is close by.

Heres what our residents say:-

"Being at the Malthouse after Kenward House has given me confidence to live life on my own, helped me grow up and stand on my own two feet." Matt C

"Spending time at the Malthouse after Kenward House helped me get my Mojo back, given me semi independence, helped me feel more comfortable within myself and I feel a better person for it."  Mike S

After the Malthouse

Support staff will help you explore your Move On and reintegration options. One of them may be to continue with your recovery within the Kenward Trust’s services.

There is the option to join one of our supported housing projects. These Move On houses offer regular support. You can stay up to 2 years while you remain abstinent and plan your new life, train or volunteer to gain skills. You will also benefit from peer support within the Move On house and through local AA/NA meetings. Men have a choice of three locations: Maidstone, Southborough and Gravesend.

Returning home or to other accommodation outside of our services

Equipped to continue your recovery with what you have learnt during your programme, we will always be happy to continue to offer informal support over the telephone or if you wish to make a return visit. We regularly welcome back ‘Recovery Graduates’ who come and talk to current residents, which benefits everyone.  We encourage Recovery Graduates to tell us how they are doing – indeed we receive many positive stories of lives that have been transformed.
