Recovery Pathways is a Trust citywide service. Through creative and wellbeing themed practice that is delivered in supportive settings, we aim to build confidence and skills, enable personal recovery from mental distress and support access to moving on.

The service offers time-limited programmes of specific activities that encourage independence, improve wellbeing strategies, and access to leisure, education and employment or volunteering opportunities.
We help people to lead valued lives by providing support, goal-focused activity, learning and training. Through creative activity and meaningful occupation we support people with their aspirations, achieve their goals and be part of their communities.
There are two pathways into our service through a central referral email address and for more information on how to refer please see below…

Results from Coronavirus Support from the Recovery Pathways
Results are coming in from the continued support and encouragement for service users from the Recovery Pathways team. Creative activity still continues, despite being at home, and our service users have benefitted from regular contact and projects that have been shared over the phone, email and through the post. For one service user, this meant creating a table out of an old pallet with the encouragement and advice from the Benchmark team.
Keep connected, keep active and keep learning something new… Links to course available below
