In 1966 Tim Cook opened a hostel for homeless men in Lambeth. It was the foundation on which the ARP and Rugby House were established. In 1982 Andy Stonard came to London to work for ARP and left four years later to help found Rugby House. The two organisations merged in 2009 to form Foundation66, one of the country’s largest alcohol-focused substance misuse service providers.
Founded on a combined 66 years’ experience in the alcohol and drug sector, this specialist knowledge and strong track record have come together to create a stronger organisation, with the capability and resources to provide an even more diverse range of services.
Foundation66 are totally committed to working with individuals, communities and policy makers to reduce the harm caused by problem alcohol and drug use.They currently support 6,500 people through a range of integrated services – from outreach through to rehabilitation – across eighteen London boroughs.
