  • The Survivors Hub, Bedford - Face-to-face group held Thursday evenings from 6 pm until 7 pm at 3A Woburn Road, Bedford MK40 1EG

The Survivors Hub is a peer-to-peer support group in Bedford co-facilitated by a member of Out of the Storm for adults affected by Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder originating in childhood, whether that is emotional/physical/sexual/spiritual and/or the result of neglect/abandonment. We understand that buried memories can return later in life with devastating consequences. We aim to provide a safe place to chat and feel emotionally supported, and share knowledge on coping strategies and skills. We find strength in solidarity and social connection, hope in the midst of despair, frustration and hopelessness. You do not need a formal diagnosis to join. Sessions are free.  

Weekly meetings will be held in Bedford at ACCM (UK)'s offices on Thursday evenings from 6 pm until 7 pm at 3A Woburn Road, Bedford MK40 1EG, situated within walking distance from bus and train stations. Booking is essential as places are limited, you do not have to be a resident of Bedford to attend. Enquiries to find out more about the group please contact (01234) 356 910,
