about us.

Hope Springs has been in existence since 2012 after being established by a local priest who was concerned about the limited provision of support provided by statutory services to help people in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. 

Hope Springs always recognise that every individual that walks through the door has an equal, legal and moral right to non-­discriminatory support. No one would be discriminated against on the grounds of age, disability, gender, race, religion, pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender reassignment. It’s important to us that everyone providing care and support to our service users deliver a accessible and welcoming service.

All too often people who had been through a detox or rehabilitation process were falling back into addiction. Drug counselling by local services was often limited to six sessions and then people were on their own. Without continuous support from services many people ended up relapsing. 

Hope Springs is not a religious organisation and it aims to provide unlimited, non-judgemental, on-going support for anyone who wishes to maintain their recovery. 

Our Activities...

The activities we offer involves art & crafts, cycling, allotmenting, walking, cookery, fishing, music and more. In addition to physical activities, and depending on client requests, Hope Springs run peer led meditation sessions and relapse awareness sessions. 
By way of incentive and acknowledgement, Hope Springs also provides hot breakfasts on Mondays and Fridays for clients and volunteers who have been involved in centre activities. Our Drop-in centre is open Mon – Fri from 10am to 4pm and this is the hub from which all our activities begin.
Our timetable below does vary from week to week depending upon demand and availability. Please check with the centre for confirmation.

Meditation Groups

Meditation can be a powerful tool, it allows us to become more focused and accepting of the present. It is the practice of thinking deeply and creating a feeling of relaxation, which can help improve your mental state of mind.

The techniques learnt during these sessions can be used outside of the centre in every day life.

Creative Writing Group

Creative writing has many beneficial effects on self development. It can help to build confidence, create artistic self-expression, help us with thought clarification, empathy and communication skills. There are also studies that prove that it has yielded better mental, emotional, and physical health benefits. Creative writing can also help alleviate stress levels.

Please help Hope Springs Recovery Centre to continue to provide support, encouragement and sanctuary to the most vulnerable in our society. People in recovery often need support in addition to that provided by the fixed appointments of statutory services. People coping with mental anxiety and emotional problems need a place to engage with others and receive support. Your donation helps to keep our drop-in centre open.

Hope Springs Recovery Centre is now registered with “Wonderful” – a charitable organisation that ensures that every penny of your donation goes to Hope Springs. Please remember that if you are a UK taxpayer you can allow us to claim Gift Aid on your donation by completing the Gift Aid section.

Hope Springs would like to acknowledge all the donors who are helping and have helped to keep our recovery centre in operation. Thank you!


Hope Springs is run completely by volunteers that dedicate their time to improving the quality of peoples lives and the community. We are always grateful for an extra pair of hands to help us provide the best possible service. There are many types of opportunities available, for example:

Being involved with people-facing activities such as welcoming new customers and partnerships, hosting art and craft sessions, being involved with musical activities and discussion groups.

Getting involved with the “back office” such as taking telephone messages, assisting with making leaflets and flyers, as well as with administration and fundraising applications.

Help organising and promoting upcoming events and fundraising. The list is endless.

Perhaps you know someone, such as a friend or a family member who is in difficulties and needs your support but you don’t know how to help them. By volunteering at Hope Springs you will gain more insight into helping people in recovery.

If you would like to find out more information regarding our Volunteer options, you can send us an email through this page or give our drop-in centre coordinator a call on 01246 540431 Your contribution no matter how big or small to the project is greatly appreciated.
