Working in partnership with organisations across Bristol, Life Recovery has built a reputation of providing help and support for people, enabling them to reach their God-given potential.

Information about the Life course can be found here.

The Life Recovery team is entering an exciting phase of development, having developed resources for other organisations to deliver the Life Course for themselves within their own community. Having trained several local charity partners, Life Recovery now wants to step this training up further, equipping organisations across the UK to set up as a Life Course franchise, meeting the needs of people living in recovery in a broader range of settings.
