Your care plan

We will create your recovery plan with you, and focus on your personal strengths and what you want to achieve. We'll create your recovery plan using language that means something to you. You'll own your own personal goals and decide what actions to take. There are lots of support options to help you achieve your goals. We'll review your actions with you every three months.

    Volunteering

    Volunteers are a vital part of the way we set out to deliver our vision. They are a powerful force for change and their support increases the quality, quantity, and accessibility of our services and the range of help we can offer. 

    We welcome anyone to volunteer with us and appreciate any time that you are able to give us to support our service.  

    We want your experience as a volunteer to be positive and we will invest in you with training, support, and supervision. You will also be able to claim back travel expenses too.

    If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer, please contact volunteer coordinator David Sagar on 07827985684 or [email protected].
