COVID UPDATE – 20th July 2020
The Trustees and committee of the SRC met on the 18th July 2020 and conducted a further review of the Risk Assessment in the light of new protocols. We are very pleased to report that we are satisfied we can reopen the centre safely and our doors will open again at the beginning of August.
It will be up to each meeting whether they wish to recommence in-person meetings and those that do must satisfy the SRC that they can provide a minimum of four responsible members willing to commit to training and to attend their meetings to perform new roles required by our Risk Assessment. Some meetings may not wish to reopen and the schedule will change. Details of what meetings will reopen and when will be published as we know it. There may be space for new meetings.
Measures include a limit of 27 people to each meeting, required check-ins and cleaning of high touch areas after each meeting. Tea and coffee will no longer be served. More information on the exact protocols will be given to every meeting and training will be conducted. We will also have resources available for meetings to contact if they have questions or concerns.
It will be the responsibility of each meeting to meet these requirements and we are counting on the cooperation of groups and the strong spirit of service fostered by 12-step recovery to prevail. Please bear with us and give all the support you can. Things will be different but we believe that with everyone working together we can begin in-person meetings again at the SRC.
The Trustees and Committee will continue to monitor the success of the reopening with a formal review at the end of August. The situation is ever changing and the health and well-being of all those attending meetings must be the priority.
We thank you in advance for your patience and help and look forward to seeing you all at the SRC. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
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.
