Our North Oxfordshire Recovery Group offers a therapeutic work environment that is supportive, creative, purposeful, and fun.
Based in Banbury, our group offers opportunities to socialise and learn new skills in cooking, woodwork, and arts and crafts. Members decide together what activities they will do.
Members have opportunities to gain insight into their strengths and consider positive changes they wish to make. We acknowledge that this can be hard work, so regular time is set aside to reflect on how things are going, both as a team and as individuals.
We often organise opportunities to attend different workshops, both internally and externally. Previous classes have included IT, metalwork and sewing.
The group is open between 9am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday (women only on Wednesdays). Members cook lunch together. From 3pm to 4.30pm there is an optional peer support and social group.
Members usually attend one or two days a week.
