About us

Originally launched on Christmas Eve 2016 by businessman and chair of CEO Sleepout, Andy Preston, Fork In The Road is now a part of the Recovery Connections family.

We offer casual and relaxed all-day dining so that you can enjoy everything from a coffee and a slice of cake to a full, hearty meal.

Situated in central Middlesbrough on Linthorpe Road, we are proud to be continuing to offer work experience and training opportunities to the long-term unemployed. From the outset, we have been run by catering professionals who are passionate about mentoring people that would not usually get the opportunity to work in this supportive setting and gain valuable experience.

“We believe everyone should have the opportunity to thrive in a supportive environment and The Fork is the perfect place for that to happen.” Dot Turton, CEO of Recovery Connections.

Recovery Connections is a Middlesbrough based charity existing to support, empower and motivate all those affected by substance abuse to sustain visible, long-term recovery. These values feed into our ethos as the employment and volunteering opportunities can not only benefit a person’s wellbeing but also integrate them back into the community.
