Betel UK is an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by addiction and homelessness. It aims to restore people to healthy, independent lifestyles, and is currently helping over 350 people at residences across the UK. Residents at the charity's centres live, work and worship together in a safe, structured and family-like environment. All residences are free of charge so that Betel can offer help to anyone, regardless of financial means. Training in life and employment skills is an essential part of the offering, and peer support is key, with the centres being run by people who have experienced freedom from addiction themselves. Betel UK is part of Betel International – a long-standing customer of Triodos Bank in Spain.
