Residential Program

Richmond Fellowship Tasmania’s Residential Recovery Program is open to adults who have a diagnosed mental illness. The program offers intensive recovery focussed support to individuals for up to 12 months to work on identified recovery goals.

Units and living spaces are furnished and fully self-contained, providing a safe platform for individuals to build capacity in living skills as they work to transition to independent living in their community.

Our Residential Recovery sites are staffed 24-hours, 7 days a week, with sites in North-west Tasmania (Ulverstone) and in the South of the State (Rokeby).

Program services include:

  • Comfortable, fully furnished, self-contained units
  • Assistance to identify specific recovery goals through our dedicated recovery model
  • Trained and compassionate staff who will support you to action identified goals
  • Access to other Richmond Fellowship programs including our dedicated recreation program (TasRec)
