Our services in Nottinghamshire:

The Academy Mansfield

Our Academy service is located in a bright, welcoming building in central Mansfield, and is a hub for people in recovery to come to and get involved in learning, training, volunteering and other activities which enhance long-term recovery.  With a state-of-the-art media and IT suite, and training rooms, the building provides a community asset which hosts a range of learning and training opportunities provided by community and FE organisations.  Digital inclusion training is a key aspect of what we offer, equipping students with the necessary skills to be able to access and apply for jobs independently.
