Wakefield Recovery College
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Following the government’s guidelines regarding coronavirus (Covid-19) we are currently pausing all face-to-face courses at the Recovery College with immediate effect. We are working with South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, our partners, staff, volunteers and wonderful communities to see if we can work creatively together to continue to provide alternative and digital support to all our learners. More information to follow soon!
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.
- 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.
Contact the Wakefield and 5 Towns Recovery College if you have any questions about course availability, how to enrol or if you would like to get involved with running a course. If you would like to volunteer with us, please register your interest.
