Welcome to Kent & Medway Recovery & Wellbeing College. Thank you for your interest in our new project in Ashford.

What do we do?

The Recovery & Wellbeing College provides health related educational courses, free of charge, in supportive and accessible learning environments. Through education, people can make sense of their own experiences and learn how to take care of themselves and others. By recognising our own resourcefulness, talents and skills we become experts in our own health, make informed choices and achieve the things we want in life.

We bring people together to realise and inspire individual and collective potential, recognising and sharing experiences, strengths, hope and successes. People can take back control and become experts in their own wellbeing and recovery and live the life that they wish to live.

How do we do it?

We are committed to promoting hope, opportunity and control for all students. We ensure an empowering, strengths based and innovative learning approach to health and wellbeing. We work together in partnership to provide educational health-related and community focussed courses, delivered in welcoming adult education venues. All our courses are co-designed and co-facilitated by people with lived and learned expertise of health challenges. We continually review and develop courses to respond to the changing needs of local people.

Who is it for?

The Recovery & Wellbeing College is provided for anyone (18+ post compulsory education) who may gain benefit from attending. This may include people who use services, their family and friends, carers and staff of associated services.

What are our values?

  • We value people as experts in their own lives.
  • We value that everyone has strengths and skills.
  • We value that people can make their own life choices.
  • We value that people can share their expertise for the benefit of others.
  • We value connectedness, collaboration and co-production.
