Your donations are so important and greatly appreciated.

As well as contributing to the costs of our day to day operations they also help fund the following:

Our national helpline and a text chat service that is available 7 days a week and manned by trained and empathetic staff. This enables us to signpost people to the recovery services they need.

At the heart of our charity is the Recovery Connect programme which offers a variety of peer-led services, including one-to-one coaching, workshops and training.

Our purpose is to promote recovery from addiction; improve health and wellbeing and encourage social inclusion, through education, training and personal development.

We believe coaching, training and education are the best ways to create a sustainable, visible recovery community in which families, children and individuals can thrive.

Hub notes #5 – June 18

At our Tuesday women’s Recovery Connects group we saw a miracle in action when a newcomer said she was unhappy about people labelling themselves alcoholics or addicts when that wasn’t all they were. Over coffee and pastries we checked in and began to work through this.

Anna, joining us for the first time, was talking about how she’d tried different meetings and found she liked some more than others. We chatted about how meetings do have a different ‘character’ or ‘flavour’. In Brighton and Hove we are really lucky to have so many meetings to choose from in many fellowships!
