New! Recovery Project


Helping More People in Hertfordshire to recover


Reach Out Recovery supports people who have been experiencing a crisis with their mental health. We do this by linking them with a local Support Volunteer who can provide practical and emotional support as they recover.


Our aims are:


  • To make a positive impact on health and wellbeing
  • To increase or improve contact with local community resources and networks
  • To reduced loneliness and social isolation
  • To reduce readmissions to hospital and reduce repeated contact with GP practices and primary care networks

Our fully trained Support Volunteers are able to support the person they are matched with for 1-2 hours each week for up to 6 months.
