"Nottingham Recovery Education Centre & Focus"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a staff member),

Following the closure of SPAN the Social Inclusion and Wellbeing Service of Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust have created further community opportunities for their service users.

A Recovery Education Centre has been opened on Mansfield Road, Nottingham.

The IT, Basic Skills and drama provision moved out to Aspley Community and Training Centre supported. Currently members of staff are supporting their service users to manage this provision themselves. A committee has been created to manage the development of the project (now known as Focus at Aspley Community and Training Centre) as well as the administration of the membership.

The committee are meeting monthly and hope to hold their first AGM in April 2012. The committee is currently made up of 11 service users and 2 carers.

The committee would like to work with the Trust as a partner. A delegation from the Focus committee are hoping to meet up with Professor Mike Cooke Notts. Healthcare Trust Chief Executive in the not too distant future.
