North West Recovery Communities is a community led partnership of people and services who are passionate about promoting recovery from Alcohol and Drugs. The partnership delivers a range of opportunities for people to be exposed to “Recovery is Possible” through a range of different activities; discussions; groups; drop in sessions and social events that take place in a range of community venues across North West. These are organised; led and delivered by local people in recovery; their families; supporters and a range of staff from local services who work in partnership with the recovery communities networks. The approach is informed by a Recovery Orientated System of Care (ROSC); a model that values the contributions of all; recognises the vital role of personal and community assets and believes that recovery is achievable for all who seek it.
North West Recovery Communities have moved our Weekly Recovery Programme online; every day of the week we have 2 video meetings with Recovery Volunteers and participants using the Google Meet app; our code for the meetings is mud-kcvp-wbs. One of these daily meetings is a check-in style meeting where people can get support. The other meeting in the day consists of an activity which varies such as women/men only meditation; virtual Zumba class; a reading; watching an educational video and discussing it; virtual bingo; singalongs and many more. Staff are also supporting volunteers one-on-one via message and phone calls. Staff are also providing support via dropping off any essentials volunteers require.
