Welcome to York In Recovery CIC.

Who are we? 

York In Recovery are a peer-support, and peer led recovery group. We are experts in direct personal experience and therefore offer a safe space,  activities, and connection for members of the York  Community who are either in recovery or who may not be in recovery but have an interest. We're a judgement free zone, we've all walked in each others shoes, so if you're considering starting your path to recovery, or if you've been in recovery for some time and are looking for a group of like-minded people to hang out with - come along! 


Our key points of contact are the Recovery Cafe sessions we host every week. These are Sunday morning, Tuesday tea time, Thursday Afternoon, plus a dedicated Women only Cafe session on a Friday afternoon. All the sessions are coordinated and ran by YIR group members. These take place around the City and we implore you to just visit one yourself. There is nothing to lose and nothing to fear!

You can find out more information on our Recovery Cafe page.

Along with the Cafes we have our allotment the Serenity Garden, as well as many WhatsApp  and Facebook groups to keep you in the loop with up to date information. 


Whether it's gardening, drama, catching up with friends, or outdoor activities, that you're into, there's something for everyone at York In Recovery. We know sometimes it can be daunting reaching out, especially for the first time but we accept everyone as they come. Take a look at our website, and feel free to join us in person, send us a text, or perhaps you're not ready to join the group yet, but you'd like to share your experiences with someone? In that case go along to the Share your Story tab, where you can send it. A poem, blog post, story, or just a rant to one of our group coordinators. 


6 members of York in Recovery stood outside the cafe. There is a mix of 2 women and 4 men of differing ages. They are huddles together some with arms around one another.
