BCHA is proud to be part of the launch of Plug In Devon, a new platform for the recovery community in Devon.
Recovery in its broadest sense encompasses the complexity of people's lives and may include, for example, recovery from mental health needs, substance use or trauma.
Plug In Devon includes online forums, news, personal stories, events and a directory of services. It aims to connect people in recovery (of any sort) with each other and with services, organisations, and grassroots groups in the region.
It especially focusses on the increased impact that living with the Covid-19 pandemic may have on individuals. The forums are live as of today and the organisers are working towards hosting live chat sessions.
The Plug In Devon project is funded by the National Lottery and has been developed by the Devon Together Alliance (DTA), a formal partnership of local organisations committed to system change and investment in Devon communities. Coordinated by EDP Drug and Alcohol Services, the DTA includes BCHA, Devon Partnership Trust, Devon Communities Together, Exeter Community Initiatives (ECI), CoLab Exeter, SAFE, Shekinah and Westbank Community Health.
BCHA hopes that the website will become an important point of reference to anyone who may need advice, peer support, or information about organisations operating in the region.
Plug in Devon would love to hear from organisations and groups operating all over Devon who have news, events, and stories that they would like to share with the Devon community.
