Help people with mental health issues back on the road to recovery through creative therapy workshops and classic car restoration.

Each, and every person at Rusty has lived experience with mental health issues, so you will never feel the odd one out. We have an open-door policy, which means you can walk in off the street, and find it a very relaxed and friendly place to be. 

If you are interested in seeing what we do, or just need to speak to someone about your mental health, please get in touch. Pop in and meet us, and have a cuppa and a chat. Tea and coffee is a driving force here at Rusty Road 2 Recovery!

If you wish to attend any of our workshops, you can either self-refer via our website or give us a call. Or, if you have a carer / social worker / village agent etc, ask them to arrange a visit.

We run our workshops by charging a daily fee. Prices can be obtained when you speak to a member of our team.  If you have limited means, depending on your circumstances, funding may be arranged through services such as Positive People.

  • We offer a safe place to talk, life skills, support with daily routines, inspiration, mindfulness, and meditation in a relaxed atmosphere, which is unlike most formal mental health therapy groups.

  • We offer one-to-one support and understanding, which leads to a sense of worth.  Clients are around like-minded people where they feel safe.  Relationships lead to friendships and peer support.

  • Our personal independent garage offers affordable car repairs.

  • Our community can be financially vulnerable, we bridge the gap others are unable to fulfill. 

  • We facilitate conversations, particularly for men, in an informal setting, which is crucial.

  • We will facilitate form completion, which can be stressful, inaccessible and bureaucratic.

  • We provide mentoring, journey assistance, interview preparation, supporting with interviews, introductions to other organisations, hobbies, interests, training and employment.

  • We support all ages to access volunteering, education, employment or training, as they can often feel rejected and require intense guidance.

  • We will work with providers to support more people to access pre-employment skills, leading to trainee-ships/apprenticeships/employment. We currently offer work experience with a local college.
