Restore

Mental illness affects one in four of us in our lifetime, but with the right support people can and do recover.

Restore is an Oxfordshire-based mental health charity that supports people to take control of their recovery, develop skills and lead meaningful lives. We offer recovery groups, training and employment coaching to make this possible.

Founded in 1977, we are one of the longest established and most highly regarded community rehabilitation services in the UK.
