The Mulberry House, a safe house in North Blackpool has been redecorated throughout with paint from Community RePaint Wyre and Fylde to create a comfortable home for substance misusers to live in as they adjust to a life without drugs and/ or alcohol.

The house was purchased earlier this year by Green Pastures for the Mulberry Community Project, an initiative which seeks to help those suffering from alcohol and drug addictions rebuild their lives. One of the major causes of relapse is poor living conditions, hence, The Mulberry House which can accommodate up to three tenants at a time, is intended to offer a decent, safe and supportive environment to help break the cycle and assist recovery.
