Meet the team
Recovery College is made up of NSFT admin, management & tutor staff as well as peer tutors and volunteers.
We serve the community in five areas, known as Care Groups, across Norfolk and Suffolk. These are East Suffolk, West Suffolk, King’s Lynn, Norwich and Great Yarmouth and Waveney. We have an office base in each one.
Day to day operations are run by a coordinator and an administrator in each area. There is also a senior administrator and a Recovery College manager who help them.
All our courses are taught by co-ordinators, peer tutors, volunteers and clinicians from mental health teams at NSFT.
We also work closely with peer support workers or PSW's across the trust and are fortunate to have their help in the development and the delivery of our courses. Peer support workers are people who have experienced mental health problems either themselves or as a carer. They use their experience to support others on their recovery journey. Find out more about the role of the peer support workers here.
Having a wide pool of support enables us to bring varied knowledge and expertise to our courses.
