Recovery College

Wakefield Recovery College

Recovery is a personal journey – it’s about building lives, creating opportunities, taking control and instilling hope.

Wakefield and 5 Towns Recovery College offers a wide range of recovery-focused educational courses.

We provide courses that can help you on your recovery journey.

Here’s our prospectus for January – July 2019.

  • Find your skills
  • Discover your strengths
  • Explore your potential to volunteer
  • Recognise yourself

Courses include condition-specific courses, such as living with anxiety and busting stress. In addition, a number of educational courses are available, including creative writing and mindfulness.

The College is based between Drury Lane Health and Wellbeing Centre in Wakefield and Baghill House Health and Wellbeing Centre in Pontefract. Courses take place here and at lots of community venues across Wakefield and the 5 towns. We’ve created a venue directory which includes maps and directions to the venues where we may hold our courses. Please note that parking charges were correct at the time of publication (June 2016).

The Wakefield and 5 Towns Recovery College has been developed in partnership with people who have experience of health problems, health professionals and local people – ensuring that courses are offered to support the needs of people in our local community.

Don’t forget, courses close two weeks before start dates. If you have not enrolled on a course and completed your Individual Learning Plan (ILP) with us before attending a course, you may be turned away for health and safety reasons. There may also not be enough space in the room to accommodate you, as many of our courses become fully booked very quickly.
