Services in Gwent are delivered by commissioned DIP Service Providers

Kaleidoscope Project

Kaleidoscope believes in providing care that is personalised to the individual’s needs. We provide a range of support programmes but what remains consistent is trying to ensure that people are given the help they need rather than providing a service that is not straightjacketed by an overriding therapeutic intervention.

Drug Service

The Newport service represents an accomplished example of a seamless service that offers a “one stop shop” approach to substance misuse.  Kaleidoscope in Newport is commissioned to provide both community prescribing and open access services.  This places Kaleidoscope in the unique position within Gwent of being able to provide a seamless fully integrated service that addresses people’s medical, social and psychosocial needs.  All these services are delivered under one roof in a building that has been designed especially for the Newport service and is easily accessible to all Newport residents.  The one stop shop approach means that a client can pick up their medication,have a Hep B vaccination, sign up for future diversionary activities such as boxing, or swimming, receive housing and employment advice and attend a support group all under one roof.  Alternatively they can just drop in for a cuppa and a chat within our welcoming cafe.  In order to ensure that we can offer a service to all members of our community, we also offer extensive assettive outreach services.

Alcohol Services

The Kaleidoscope Alcohol service is based at offices in Chepstow and Pontypool, as well as a range of GP surgeries around the boroughts of Torfaen and Monmouthshire
