AXS Recovery Fund


The AXS Recovery Fund has been developed to help people living in Dumfries and Galloway with alcohol or drug misuse issues in their recovery process. The AXS Recovery Fund is also available to groups.

Applications are considered by members of the AXS Recovery Group, and each is considered on its own merits. The panel are keen to support as many people as possible, but applications must be completed by a member of staff from one of the ROSC partners and must meet some or all of the eligibility criteria.
