Recovery College Choir

The aim of the Recovery College Choir is to encourage having fun, build confidence and inspire hope in recovery.

You do not need to have any experience of singing, nor any particular talent.

Enrolment will be necessary so if you would like to join the choir give us a call on 01915612276.

One-to-one Development

We offer optional One-to-One Personal Development sessions to students and volunteers.

These give you a chance to go through your learning journey booklet with a member of the team and discuss your achievements so far at Sunderland Recovery College. You may be surprised how far you’ve come since you started the college!

Maybe you would like to discuss which of our courses you would like to do next, to progress on to a course in the community, to volunteer somewhere or to move on to employment.

If you would like to book a Personal Development session, please contact a member of the recovery college team on 01915612276.

Please note that usual enrolment procedures still apply for courses and workshops; attending a Personal Development session does not guarantee students a place on any particular course or workshop.

Information Sessions

Come along and enjoy refreshments in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where you can discuss current affairs, get to know each other and develop friendships.

We will have guest speakers visiting on a regular basis offering information on a range of subjects.

Health Champions

The Health Champion programme aims to develop community leadership skills with FREE courses, so that passionate individuals can make a difference to health in their work, community and social networks.

We are looking for people who work or volunteer in Sunderland, who are concerned about current health issues and are interested in promoting healthy lifestyles.

The benefits of completing the five day training courses are that you can get involved in your community and gain new skills through access to training opportunities. You may improve your own health as well as friends and families.

The FREE training courses should be viewed like a jigsaw. You can do them in any order, at your own pace, and you can do just one or two courses, but to become a fully trained Health Champion you need to do ALL five training courses over a 12 month period.
