Our Impact

Studio Upstairs is one of the very few organisations in the sector to openly recognise that enduring conditions of distress, often resulting from complex set of factors, which have impacted over the course of years, require longer term support as opposed to sporadic, time limited interventions. There is more than enough evidence that the overwhelming pressures to apply short term approaches (largely guided by economic considerations), effectively leads to cycles of relapse and paradoxically presents much higher cost to individuals, families and to society as a whole.
