About Social Ground Force

Social Ground Force was established in 2014 to tackle a gap in existing care services. Essentialy the gap in services is the passage of time from when the sufferer calls out for help to when they actually get help. Some of those crying out for help could not suffer this passage of time and as a result lives were lost.

Aubrey Melville the founder and CEO of Social Ground Force recognised that it was essential to form a new and unique type of service to address this gap in services. So Social Ground Force was formed to implement services to address this Death Gap.


Our Mission 

Never miss an opportunity to pull another from the flames


Never Cause another to Stumble.

We offer immediate assistance with no appointment required in a safe, non judgmental, empathetic and genuine environment in which to get help and enjoy life again.

We enable those who wish to recover from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body and educate our service users that they suffer from a Mental Illness caused by addiction. We guide them back to a stable and non mind altering free environment. We know that recovery from such disorders is possible and believe that hope lies within our services at Social Ground Force. We can be your ear to listen, shoulder to cry on, your road map, your guide, your bridge and support system in getting back on track towards a new tomorrow.
