Recovery Code X wins National Lottery award to help people with Complex PTSD get through Covid pandemic

Recovery Code X, the Bedford-based community

group set up to help people navigate a way to better
health after long term inescapable trauma or abuse
and raise awareness of Complex PTSD, has been
awarded a grant from the National Lottery Awards for All.


REACHING OUT to survivors

The money will be used to produce and distribute print and audio resources to help people knowingly or unknowingly struggling with Complex PTSD in Bedfordshire during the Covid19 pandemic.


Project Educate 2021 Stage One will see the creation and distribution of self-help factsheets and podcasts for survivors, their friends and families in a Bedfordshire-wide campaign.


The guides will address the following themes:


·  Understanding Complex PTSD – for survivors

·  Supporting recovery: Do’s and Don’t’s - for friends and families

·  NHS treatments available during Covid19 and how to access them.

·  Holistic therapies survivors can access and the symptoms they address.


Studies have shown that education can reduce self-blame, shame and other negative thought patterns. It can be also be a catalyst for change, and the exploration of treatment options.

Founder, Anna Bragga, said: “Project Educate 2021 builds on our previous work running peer support groups. Effective distribution of the self-help resources will be key to the success of the project. Anyone interested in stocking copies of the double-sided flyers or obtaining the podcasts should contact Recovery Code X .”
