The purpose of the advisory group (PDF) and reference groups (PDF) is to advise and further the work of the Community of Communities whose purpose is to improve the quality of TCs by supporting standards-based peer-review and accreditation. 

The Community of Communities have a diverse membership with a range of services across all sectors. Whilst all communities have signed up to the same standards, (addiction TCs have a supplementary set) the needs of each sector do vary.

We are keen to host an inclusive network and want to hear from all members to support and improve the Community of Communities.

If you would like to attend any of these groups please contact cofc@rcpsych.ac.uk.

On the Third Thursday of every month, Community of Communities hold a community meeting online for our paid members. We offer this forum as a place to share experiences and learning.

After a year of holding Online Community Meetings CofC are reviewing these and would like your feedback. Please complete our feedback form.

If you are interested in attending a community meeting or have anything for the agenda, please contact cofc@rcpsych.ac.uk to register your interest.

This year on 1 June 2022 we hosted our first in-person Annual Forum in 3 years with over 70 attendees.

We chose to explore the theme “Therapeutic Communities in Transition” as it reflected how many of our members were going through a period of transition following the COVID-19 pandemic and was explored through a series of seminars, workshops and presentations.

If you attended our Annual Forum this year, please complete our feedback form that looks at different elements of the day. Any feedback will be given anonymously and will be used to improve future events at the College.

Every year Community of Communities holds a creative competition where members can submit their artwork.

We welcome submissions from any of our members and these can be paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, poetry or short stories. We have received some fantastic submissions over the years. Winning entries will receive a certificate and will be displayed on our website.

This year our Creative Competition was launched in December 2021 and displayed at our Annual Forum in June 2022.

Winners will have their art included in reports we publish, and are displayed on our website.
