About the WA Recovery College Alliance

The Western Australian Recovery College Alliance (WARCA), aims to create opportunities for anyone in the community looking to connect, explore and transform. 

We believe every person has something of value to contribute, which is what makes our learning opportunities unique. We recognise our students bring just as much to the classroom as our educators.

Across the world, Recovery Colleges have demonstrated that an educational approach can be successful in supporting people to overcome barriers, including challenges related to mental health, substance use and other life issues.

WARCA offers pathways to explore personal growth and new perspectives, broaden experience and form connections.
