We have taken the unprecedented decision to close the RC centres. We are very sad but it is the most sensible option for us in the circumstances.
Our main message to members and volunteers is that although the doors are closed RC RECOVERY SUPPORT IS OPEN – 7 DAYS PER WEEK – Please see below our New Online Recovery Timetable
On a positive, we will still be delivering a range of ‘distance’ peer led recovery support, 7 days per week and are busy designing new resources to help with this. Please bear with us for a while we trial and develop this further – it’s going to be imperfect for a while as we coordinate it all from home. We’ll then send more info about how people can get involved, refer etc.
Overall, we will continue to offer:
Daily and weekly support ‘packages’ for members and volunteers
We will continue to take new referrals via the phone and email
The offer to contact members at the times they used to access the centre for groups, 1:1’s etc. to help them maintain some routine
Online group chats in lieu of groups
Additional Telephone recovery support, as well as our existing lists
Phone recovery coaching
Video 1:1 support and recovery coaching using skype and WhatsApp video on the RC phones
Increased use of texts, social media posts, Vlogs, blogs and online support information
Postcards and letters for those who do not have phones or social media
We will continue to send birthday cards etc. for as long as we can.

Email – if they say they check emails!
State that they have given permission for us to contact them
Whether there is a time or day that best suits them for us to contact them
