6 January: Our North Oxfordshire Recovery Group has closed for the time being.  We are operating our Remote Support service as it was during the first lockdown.

Your Recovery Group teams will be in touch with you with any updates as soon as they can.

Our Recovery Projects have closed for the time-being.

Recovery Project members  will continue to receive Remote Support through an individually tailored phone support call on the day they are due to attend their Recovery Groups.

Our staff will provide individual phone support depending on your individual needs. This might include:

  • Signposting to online support groups
  • Signposting to benefit support, food banks, volunteering opportunities, and any social networks
  • Discussing relevant recovery goals, e.g. maintaining wellbeing, creativity, exercise, good eating, maintaining contact with friends/family
  • Sharing news and tips from staff, and the other Recovery Groups
  • Sharing information to help you prepare for the resumption of regular life, i.e. maximising job readiness if you are working with an Employment Coach

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 want 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 3pm, Monday to Friday. Members cook lunch together.

Members usually attend one or two days a week.

A morning meeting discussing the days activities any future events and information sharing.
