Recovery Academy

Welcome to the Recovery Academy which has been established to support people who have undergone drug and alcohol rehabilitation to integrate back into society equipped with the skills and confidence to thrive.

The Recovery Academy is run by the O’Connor Gateway Trust, a local charity which works in close partnership with BAC O’Connor and provides opportunities for people to access training, education, volunteering and employment experience following rehabilitation; the Trust has recently been able to extend the services it provides thanks to support from the Big Lottery.

  • A full equipped training kitchen with a qualified chef trainer
  • Opportunities to work with Langan’s External Catering Service
