Ray, Crystal and Kon-ick welcome you.

Our work is about BELONGING TO YOURSELF.​

We are made up of sensational Volunteers who give their time to support individuals, using our lived experience to support and motivate others to develop the tools they need to overcome emotional and mental health challenges and become mentally resilient and empowered to advocate for their own and others wellbeing.

BRAVE ‧ Nottingham is committed to bringing people together to heal, grow and empower one another. Based on Dr. Brené Brown’s work on vulnerability for healing. We pride ourselves on educating, supporting & empowering all individuals who have experienced trauma and stress. Using peer support to help us navigate through the complexities that can come with it.

You deserve to belong to you

Talk. Connect. Heal. Grow.

This community has given me my life back. it has given me the best gift in the world – myself.

before I came to the BRAVE · Notts Community I didn’t have any self-esteem, I had a massive wall around me, and no one was getting in.

Within a week my wall came crumbling down. The women I have met and the friendships I have formed through this community have changed my life.

I am forever grateful for BRAVE · Nottingham, especially Ray. She is an amazing woman.
