The Soho Recovery Centre is a dedicated space in the heart of London for 12-Step recovery meetings to take place located at 123 Charing Cross Road, WC2H 0EW.
COVID UPDATE – 29th June 2020
The Trustees of the SRC commissioned a comprehensive Risk Assessment in the light of the latest Government guidelines to address the question of how the centre can open and begin hosting meetings again and met on Saturday, 27th June to review it. The SRC is unique in the volume of meetings it hosts and the onus it places on individual meetings to self-run. This creates problems that are not easy to solve in the framework of the existing business model.
Having thoroughly considered all the implications of the Risk Assessment and attempted to balance the need to open up the venue with the responsibility to keep attendees safe, the trustees have decided not to open the SRC in July. They will continue to monitor government guidelines and the success of in-person meetings opening up again at some venues and explore ways to mitigate the risks and challenges faced by the SRC. There will be a further meeting at the end of July to reassess the situation and an update will follow.
We are extremely keen to reopen the centre but we must be able to do it safely. In the meantime, we would be very grateful for any financial support as we prepare to meet extra costs with decreased revenues. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments or questions.
Due to the current situation with Covid 19, the SRC has made the decision to temporarily close our venue. For more information please see here:
Modelled on similar centres around the world, it is available to any 12 Step Fellowship group such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, Crystal Meth Anonymous, AlAnon and Anorexics and Bulimics Anonymous etc. for their meetings to take place.
It is open 365 days a year and allows meetings to go on regardless of holidays. Meetings contribute to the centre based on the number of their attendees rather than a flat rate for the room.
This helps smaller fellowships to access an affordable meeting space and new meetings get started.
It is a permanent foothold for recovery in Central London. The person in need of a meeting can always head to the centre knowing that there will be a meeting soon. The Soho Recovery Centre is an easy place for newcomers to find, where they can meet other members and become familiar with the workings and locations of other meetings, as well as those held at the centre itself.
The Soho Recovery Centre is an independent charity started by some friends in recovery. We do not have any affiliation to any 12 Step Group and we receive no official funding from anyone. The funds that keep the centre open come from contributions from meetings and from private individuals supporting the SRC.
