Great Expectations is a service user led group, for service users in recovery. Our aim is to try to support individuals who find it hard to leave their home to engage in activities and social contacts within the community as part of their recovery journey.
This is done through a network of “Peer Leaders” encouraging and supporting individuals to access activities delivered by existing professional services.
Great Expectations “Peer Leaders”, encourage individuals to attend activities and events to increase recovery capital. Like money in the bank is financial capital, recovery capital is quite simply helping people to realise that the contacts, skills and resources, they have are awesome, and will help them in their recovery journey to work towards their hopes, dreams and aspirations.
Great expectations peer leaders and its members seek to increase that recovery capital through activities and social contact and in some cases offer the first step on the recovery journey that we all know is the most hardest.
There is a wide range of activities and events on offer so keep looking at the web site
