Betel of Britain is a group of caring, not-for-profit Christian communities in the heart of the UK dedicated to restoring homeless and long-term unemployed people to healthy, independent lifestyles. They train men and women in a wide range of life and employment skills, enabling them to rebuild a strong work ethic. All of the residences are drug- and alcohol-free and totally free of charge. Betel offers the opportunity of restoration to all persons who seek their help.

They currently have centres in Birmingham, Derby, Hexham, Manchester, Nottingham, Watford and in Dublin, with room for around 340 men and women. Entry to their residences is extremely simple and very quick; they can usually take people the next day, following a successful telephone interview. Thousands of men and women have broken free from addiction through the work of Betel; if you, or someone you know is struggling with addiction there is hope of a new life in their centres.
