Life Recovery

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Life Course and Life Recovery Groups have stopped temporarily.

Existing service users are being supported and cared for remotely by Stuart and Ant and the LRG leaders.

Life Recovery

Our Life Recovery project helps people recovering from addiction and abuse; teaching life skills, creating mutual support and nurturing people’s faith. It’s split into two parts: the Life Course and Life Recovery Groups.

The Life Course is an eight-week course, designed to teach people in recovery how to care for themselves, how to manage unhelpful thinking patterns, how to build and maintain healthy relationships and how to live independently.
Life Recovery Groups are Christian recovery communities supporting people who have been affected either directly or indirectly by substance misuse, mental health problems or compulsive behaviour.

The Life Course


The Life course seeks to help clients who are in recovery to develop resilience through the development of practical life skills. The course aims to increase self-care, improve mental well-being, develop healthy relationships and help clients take steps towards sustainable independent living with meaningful activity.
Apply online or download an application form to register for the course.
Or, if you’re referring someone, complete a risk assessment form online  or download one here.
What is the Life Course?

The course contains four modules, each one lasting two weeks. The modules run on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.

  • Module 1: Self Care
  • Module 2: Mind Matter
  • Module 3: Healthy Relationship
  • Module 4: Life Management

The course is an abstinence-focused life skills programme aimed at adults (ages 25+) who are in early recovery and have completed a treatment programme. We will accept those who are reducing on a script.

This course is for those who:

  • lack confidence and life skills
  • have been homeless
  • have been in active addiction
  • suffer from mental health problems
  • have a criminal record
  • have been long term under-employed

BUT who want to make life changes and improve their lives.

Essential Information

  • Each module supports a maximum class size of 12 and is offered free of charge.
  • Students are expected to attend the whole course; they cannot pick and choose sessions or modules.
  • Students will need to enrol before the course starts; it is important that a group begins and completes the course together, so students cannot join half way through.
  • Students can self refer although it is preferred that your application is supported by a referral.
The next course will run from 31st January to 10th April 2020.
