Bringing hope and practical support for women caught up in addictive behaviour
TK is an Ipswich based charity whose mission is to reach out with love, compassion and practical support to women struggling with addictions.
We have established a support group in Ipswich called "Women Together". It offers support and hope for any women whose lives have been affected by any addiction.
We are creating on the outskirts of Ipswich a purpose built residential, rehabilitation centre for women recovering from addictions, primarily but not exclusively drug and alcohol addictions.
Welcome to our website. For more information on who we are, what we do and what is happening please try out the button links at the top.

Dear TK Supporter and Friend
TK’s Trustees are delighted to announce development plans for our residential Centre over the coming months.
After a great deal of consultation it has been decided that we shall pursue the completion of a six-woman residential rehabilitation facility as a stepping-stone towards the final vision of a twelve-woman Centre.
Next year will be the 10th anniversary of the terrible murders in Ipswich and it is fitting that we pursue with all haste the provision of a Centre that allows women to be helped and supported at our Centre as soon as possible. Taking this decision to begin our activities on a smaller scale will enable this to happen and is a major step in TK’s progress. The £1.5million project to create a twelve-woman community remains very much a reality and in order to attain that we are taking this exciting step of beginning on a smaller scale.
What this will mean is very little alteration to our original building plans. Those original plans comprise of a large, two-storey resource Centre and two accommodation blocks able to house twelve women. We shall, in this interim phase, use the two accommodation blocks for our work with six women, one of the blocks being turned into a resource Centre.
The exciting thing about this decision is that we can begin work with women sooner; we can meet the clamour from health professionals for such a Centre more quickly; we can manage more sensibly in a smaller scaled operation; we can expect funding from grant making bodies to be more forthcoming as we demonstrate the success of a smaller operation; our local community can dovetail more comfortably into the activities at the Centre.
With this decision comes the need to modify our care plan for women once they are at the Centre. A team is doing this at the moment in readiness for completion of the buildings.
This is a very exciting and pivotal moment for TK. Through prayer and through extensive partnerships we are seeing Women Together groups in Ipswich supporting women with addictions and now the fruition of many years of faithful endeavour sees the prospect of an operational rehabilitation Centre almost upon us.
In order to complete this phase of the building a further £250,000 is needed, in addition to the funds already available. This gives us the accommodation and the resource facility to begin work with women. There is the very definite possibility that this could happen very quickly. Please would you prayerfully consider contributing to this investment in our community and into the lives of many women who need this opportunity.
Four supporters of TK leapt from a plane last weekend, all committed to helping TK’s mission of supporting women with addictive behaviour. The four brave souls, mum and son team Yvonne and Matthew Cross along with Kayleigh Fenton and Hannah Bailey-Thomas soared in a plane to 13,000 feet.
With an instructor strapped to their backs they leapt out of the plane to do a minute’s freefall before parachuting into the Beccles Airfield landing zone. They were raising funds for TK, whose work is also flying high.
