Welcome to Ripon Trauma Centre

Providing a path to recovery for adults & children

We are a Community Interest company based at Ripon Community House on Allhallowgate in Ripon, North Yorkshire for adults and children allowing people to access our services reasonably quickly regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability or wealth.  We offer our subsidised services to residents within the Harrogate and Rural Districts.

We are passionate about creating social change, using interventions and approaches to support people dealing with the effects of psychological trauma.  We exist because we recognise the disparity between mental and physical health, and trauma being a step further away. A one size fits all approach to complex trauma is not how we operate.  

We are available by appointment only – please contact us to make a booking.

As a community interest company we ask participants to pay what they can afford, make a donation or pay forward for someone else. Please note we are not a charity and cannot offer our services for free – we are approved by the Primary Care Networks (NHS and social prescribing) but our services are not free.
