Important Recovery Academy update:

To all of our valued Recovery Academy students,

The Recovery Academy Team has made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining courses in the current prospectus and for the first time since we opened in 2013, not to publish our next prospectus on 1 April 2020.

We are following advice from the UK Government regarding social distancing.  As most of you are aware, the Recovery Academy Team is made up of experienced staff and volunteers who can now support the wider Trust in providing core business and care to our most vulnerable.

In the event that precautions are lifted before the end of the duration of the next prospectus (i.e. September 2020), we will not offer any new courses during this time. This is because we have many students who were part way through courses before we had to close. When we are able to open again we will prioritise the completion of courses for these students, get ourselves straight again, and work on preparing our 1 October 2020 prospectus.

For those of you who were part way through courses, we will be in touch as soon as we can. For all other students, we really will look forward to seeing you all again in October.

In the meantime, some of you may find our resources helpful.  We have been busy collecting service information and health and wellbeing resources and these can be found here. You can find all sorts of service information including helplines, social media support groups, and foodbank details, and all sorts of health & well being resources including NHS approved apps, self help resources, and guided spiritual and creative activities.

We hope you find these resources useful. Until then, stay safe. We are thinking of you all.

The Recovery Academy Team.
