Welcome to The Rob Hill Foundation charity
We’re working on a new website. In the meantime, here’s some key information.
About The Rob Hill Foundation
The Rob Hill Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1181220) is dedicated to Rob Hill (left), twin brother to Chris Hill, who tragically lost his life May 2014 to an accidental drug overdose. The charity aims to reach out to as many people in the world as possible and share the solution to beating addiction; so that other families do not suffer in the same way.
About Chris Hill
Chris Hill is an addiction expert and the best-selling author of Get Your Life Back: The Road to Freedom from Addiction. After losing his twin brother and having battled 20 years of addiction himself to drugs, alcohol and nicotine - Chris discovered the solution to overcoming addiction and then created a programme to teach this method to others. He does this through his Beat Addiction Programme (available free to download), his book, online course, workshops, seminars and one-to-one support. Chris has helped thousands of people beat addiction and turn their lives around – return to families, start or return to work, keep their homes, take the next positive step in life …
What we do
The Rob Hill Foundation helps people beat addiction to both substances and activities; as well as empowering them to deal effectively with anxiety, stress and depression. This extends to dealing with trauma, any fear-based conditions and OCD.
The charity targets people who struggle to find help through the health service, those on benefits, those at risk of homelessness and those who are already homeless.
At present, addiction recovery workshops are delivered to service users of local homeless charities in Woolwich and Sidcup, Kent UK. These are extremely well received and have seen service users recover from life-long addictions. This has allowed many to consider seeking employment or training and taking up other offers of help and support.
In addition, Chris Hill’s weekly workshop / help and support group sees an average 50 people a week attending per workshop, for free (subsidised by the charity). Chris delivers his addiction recovery programme and those attending receive on-going support both from Chris and other members of the group at different stages of recovery. This builds a ‘community’ around the individual, which lessens the sense of isolation and improves confidence to progress.
The charity’s vision is to expand the workshops to other areas of London, other major cities in the UK and eventually for the work to have a world-wide reach.

Where the money goes
All donations are gratefully received
Your money will go to:
Back to Kindness – public awareness campaign
In association with Denise Mortimer & Ministry of Sound
Our Back to Kindness rucksack distribution event has been held once a year at Christmas for the past three years. It has received the support of Ministry of Sound who have offered us their premises for the volunteers to meet and sort the distribution. And supplied food and refreshments complimentary to all.
We receive donations of filled rucksacks containing NEW essential items for those living on the streets, such as a hat, gloves, scarf, thermals, tooth brush, toothpaste etc. And some food items which might otherwise be a luxury such as chocolate and biscuits. We also include a hand-written card or home-made card from children.
We have around 150 volunteers and in excess of 1000 rucksacks and sleeping bags. We go out onto the streets of London and talk to homeless people, give them some time and attention, listen to their stores and distribute the rucksacks. The purpose of this event is to:
We want to expand this out to the whole of the UK
Restoring someone’s faith in humanity can have a profound and lasting effect on an individual and it is our belief that this positive gesture may start the ball-rolling for anyone thinking about reaching out and asking for help; or undertaking the necessary steps to improve their situation.
