Discovery Hub

The Discovery Hub is an innovative service funded by Tees Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with Converge. We provide information and access support for anyone who has experienced mental health illness and wishes to use learning opportunities as part of their recovery journey.

The Discovery Hub’s team of Learning Access Workers support people who have experienced mental health illness to gain access to learning opportunities across the city of York and surrounding areas. 

We work closely with Converge at York St. John University to connect people to educational and learning opportunities that enhance a recovery journey, enabling a person to rebuild identity, relationships and independence. 

We offer free one to one information sessions to look at how we can help you to meet your learning goals, and our team of Learning Access Workers can support you in connecting to learning across the community.

You can contact us directly on the below email and telephone number

Learning Access Workers

We now offer Learning Access Workers to help people work towards specific short term goals. This means that if you are keen to investigate a new opportunity, would like to find out more about what is going on at Converge or across the York area, or would like assistance to access a course we can provide one off sessions with a Learning Access Worker to support you towards these specific short term goals.

We draw on our whole team for support; so if there are lots of different things you would like to do (perhaps start a course, find work, access activities) we can hopefully meet those different needs.

Community of Learners

Once enrolled with the Discovery Hub you become part of our Community of Learners and are welcome to access signposting and advice in your journey at any given time. We will also keep you on our mailing list and let you know of community courses and opportunities that might be of interest to you.
