Over half a million pounds will be spent on providing training, voluntary work and employment for people in Weymouth with mental health or addiction issues.
Weymouth Community Volunteers have won £253,331 of lottery funding for their Re-Start programme which will also help ex-offenders.
The volunteers will work closely with other agencies to identify those most at need.
Structured activities tailored to the individual will help them avoid relapse or re-offending.
