What’s on at the Digital Recovery College?

There are some exciting changes taking place at the college for spring term. 

There will be more face to face courses and classes than in recent years, and the college is combining in person lessons with the best of what it has been doing online.

Face to face activities in London

Spring term will see the launch of the college’s first Learning Club at Great Guildford Street, London. 

Taking place every Monday during term time, clients can meet-up with tutors and volunteers to learn new skills and find out more about what is on offer at the college.

There will be sessions in English for Speakers of other Languages (ESOL), maths, creative writing and a book creation course. The digital inclusion team will also be at the club to help clients get online and develop their digital skills.    

The music studio in Endell Street, London, will also be welcoming more clients to more sessions than in recent terms. 

Online classes are continuing

The college is continuing to offer students the best of what it has being doing online over the past couple of years. 

If a client can get online or access a phone, wherever they live, there is a wide selection of courses and classes to choose from. 

The ever popular Mindfulness and Life Coaching courses remain online, and there are also classes in photography, writing and website creation that clients can sign up for online.  The virtual book club is also continuing for clients that enjoy reading and discussing stories as a group.


Digital Recovery College activities are open to all current St Mungo’s clients, or anyone who has accessed a St Mungo’s service within the past six months. Clients must be over the age of 18.

The college’s spring term starts on the Monday 23rd January and prospective students can sign up for classes anytime.
