About Us

Liber8 Lanarkshire was established in October 2007 following the successful merger of The Local Council on Alcohol South Lanarkshire (Established 2005) and Street Base (Established 2000). Liber8 is registered as a limited company by guarantee and has charitable status. Liber8 delivers a range of services throughout Lanarkshire. The initial work of Liber8 was to provide a proactive and reactive approach to tackling alcohol and substance misuse problems, this has expanded into providing a diverse range of community based services.

Since 2007 we have made a significant impact supporting vulnerable individuals and families in Lanarkshire. We have unrivalled knowledge and experience of local communities, statutory and voluntary sector provision, adult addiction services, social housing, children and family services. We are embedded in this community and have a proven track record of successfully engaging with some of the most vulnerable individuals and families in Lanarkshire and working with them to secure positive outcomes.

Our mission is to improve the health, wellbeing and the quality of people's lives, with a particular regard to reducing the negative impact of alcohol and substance misuse on the individual, families and communities

Our vision and continued belief is based on the enduring fundamentals of service provision and the ethos held within Liber8, which are; open access available to everyone; choice for our service users; the improvement of the health and wellbeing for all and quality assurance - to provide the best quality service to those most in need.

Our name, Liber8 and our logo which dipicts a broken chain, represents Liberation, breaking free, being unchained from the chains that can bind us.
