Peer to peer support is an integral part of recovery – being able to feel safe so you can share your story if you wish to but also to celebrate your strengths.

Often we can feel isolated, scared and alone and misunderstood.  Here at Take Cover we value your space and anonymity and we do not ask you to disclose any information that you feel unable to.

Come along and meet other women who have overcome challenges, or who still are – we are all at different stages of recovery and that’s what makes the group a special place to come.

There is no cost – however donations are appreciated to cover the cost of the meeting rooms and facilities.

We have tea, coffee and biscuits so look forward to meeting you.
