Founded by model and actor Paul Sculfor, STRIDE aims to provide high impact support for individuals who are affected by addiction. Throughout his professional life, Paul noticed a high rate in addiction problems and after his personal experience with recovery, he is passionate about helping others. Recognising and understanding the difficulties in integrating and continuing to function within society during recovery has inspired Paul to set up STRIDE. 

STRIDE’s goal is to raise awareness and provide direct resources to those who may not have access or support to continue with their recovery and re-integration into society. 

Addiction is a common yet highly misunderstood public health issue, which directly affects 1 in 10 individuals in the UK (WHO, 2014) and 1 in 5 individuals indirectly (Ad Fam evidence). The definition of the word stride is: "walk with long, decisive steps in a specified direction." - the aim is to facilitate this journey by supporting and contributing to local charity initiatives and improving public perception surrounding addiction.
