The Ark


The Ark is a drop-in group for women in recovery from addiction. We offer a welcoming and safe environment in which women can meet, share, and support each other with any aspect of life.


The group meets on a Friday morning from 10am-12pm for a cuppa and a chat in a relaxed, encouraging, and non-judgmental atmosphere. When we are not just chatting, we might engage in other fun activities, creative projects, or go on an outing.  


Feel free to come along and join us. We would love to meet you!


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact


"The Ark really helped me stop drinking. It was an event that gave my week structure and purpose; something to look forward to"

"The Ark turned out to be a safe place to socialize, meeting women with the same problems and challenges in a relaxed and holding atmosphere. You do not have to be on guard, because you don't get judged; instead, I found people I can confide in and have fun with."

"When I took the first step to come, it was so great to experience how friendly, welcoming and helpful everyone was. Attending The Ark gave me confidence, a sense of normality and a sober social life."

The Ark: Update

Our Friday Morning Zoom meeting- Staying connected through lockdown

Our Friday Morning Meetings now on Zoom.

Despite the current restrictions due to the Coronavirus Pandemic we have still been able to meet up weekly via Zoom. It is such a blessing to be able to meet in this way, encouraging each other, chatting, and laughing.

The technology has been a real challenge and learning curve for all of us but with patience and perseverance we are proud to have pushed through and can now enjoy seeing more and more Ark ladies in our Zoom chat.
