Mutual aid

We recognise and support the important role mutual aid may have in an individual’s recovery journey and work with partner agencies to ensure there is as much variety of options available as possible. Telford STaRS provides Self Management and Recovery Training (SMART) and we work closely with Telford After Care Team (TACT) which provides mutual aid, after care and support for people recovering from substance addiction and associated issues. To find out more about SMART please see our timetable area here.
