Find out more about our Bristol Recovery College here.
Students can now enrol onto a variety of Recovery College day or weekly courses, jointly designed by, and for, clients, staff and others, in London and Bristol.
What is a Recovery College?
The idea of Recovery Colleges developed from health services. Our Recovery Colleges provide safe and inclusive learning opportunities, supporting recovery through involvement in learning. Read more about its successes and our students' feedback in this Recovery Results Briefing.
Who can enrol?
The courses are for our clients, our staff and external people who want to register. What we want are students with an enthusiasm to learn.
The courses are designed and taught with, and by, our clients, at the Recovery College, which is based at 33 Rushworth Street, Southwark, London SE1 0RB, and at the Compass Centre/New Street Centre in Bristol.

What do students say?
'It's made me more creative and imaginative'
'It's refreshing that, just because you've been homeless and experienced some difficulties, you don't have to think small'
‘I've diversified more, taking on new challenges, whereby I feel now I can deal with more situations'
‘I would say I am more motivated and adventurous to try new things'
'There isn't anything I've seen like this before, with such a wide variety of courses with like minded people'
'This college offers a middle ground between ‘just for fun' and ‘very academic''
The new term has started and will run from 23 May to 12 August 2016. If you would like to enrol please email Ethel Kojman for an appointment or come along on Fridays between 12-2pm. Groups are welcome!
