The LASH (Leigh Action on Street Health)
The Lash Project was set up to offer councelling and emotional support to vulnerable adults as well as councelling for Addiction.
The Local Borough Council had issued an Alcohol ban in all its Town Centres, with the help of the Police , anyone found drinking in the street faced removal, arrest or on the spot fine.
The obvious Alcohol problem was simply being brushed aside with this Ostrich Mentality, instead of adressing the issues head on.
The Lash offered somewhere safe to go, at least for the two days a week that it could be funded.
Councelling sessions,reading classes, music lessons, pool, tea and coffee and companionship, as long as you did not consume Drugs or Alcohol on the premesis. slave-unit © 2004
