The most beautiful people, are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
There persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of lifeThat fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.
- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

There are exciting opportunities’ for people to join our team and volunteer with the recovery college, we are in partnership with Thurrock Mind, a local charity. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer you can do this by contacting Thurrock Mind and enrolling as a volunteer. We offer training through Thurrock Mind and the Recovery College to develop existing and new skills and help people make the most of their potential. We are excited to work alongside Thurrock Mind which received an accreditation from Investors in Volunteers in October 2016.
We also have links with other community groups and organisations so this could be a stepping stone into another exciting opportunity elsewhere. Volunteering can be a way for you to meet like-minded people, to give something back to your local community and to gain confidence and new skills, through volunteering many people go into paid roles through the knowledge they have imparted whilst giving their time and commitment for free.
