We strive for systems, services and cultures to support Recovery and wellbeing for all locally, nationally and internationally.

Our Philosophy

We develop recovery and recovery-focused practices for all. We facilitate change locally, nationally and internationally through working in partnerships and valuing the expertise and contribution each person can bring.

Our Purpose

We work in partnerships to develop services, systems and communities that support recovery and wellbeing for all. We have been leading the way in recovery-oriented service and practice improvement since 2011.

Our Role

Background

Originally established on behalf of the Department of Health to champion its ‘Supporting Recovery’ initiative, through a collaboration between the Centre for Mental Health and the NHS Confederation’s Mental Health Network, we are now a quasi-independent, not-for-profit organisation hosted by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

We have a tried-and-tested methodology and an overarching framework for working in partnerships to support recovery and wellbeing for all. We are moving towards a set of principles that can be applied in a range of situations and across a broader range of challenges  that people encounter, the services that support them and the communities in which they live. Alongside the strategic level support we can offer, we also have detailed, topic specific knowledge and expertise in transforming particular areas of recovery and wellbeing practice such as peer support and recovery colleges.

How can we support you?

We can offer you:

  • bespoke organisational support
  • workshops and training across a wide range of subject areas
  • training, advice and guidance with developing peer support
  • consultancy, coaching and action learning for your team development 
  • workshops, strategic consultancy and resources to facilitate and embed coproduction within and across your teams and organisation

Our Principles

  • We work with, and bring together, individuals, families, communities, service systems and those who work within them.
  • We work in coproduction
  • We seek to change relationships between health/social care providers and those who they serve: the people they support, those who are close to them, and the communities they serve.
  • We take a recovery approach to safety
  • We support the development of inclusive communities
  • We work individually and collectively to decrease the material and social disadvantages
