The Shadow Justice Minister visited the Basement Project this afternoon (Friday).
Dan Jarvis, MP for Barnsley Central, heard about the work the recovery project does to help those battling drug and alcohol misuse.
Mr Jarvis said: “I’ve not seen anything like this, they do incredibly important work and make a huge contribution to the community here in Halifax.
“I think what they do here could serve as a role model for other organisations around the country.”
