This consultation report will inform us and lead onto further work in the field – research was conducted in collaboration with the Road to Recovery Trust.
Two consultation sessions with people in recovery and experience of addiction were held. The format for the sessions were developed in partnership with senior management from Recovery Connections in Middlesbrough and The Road to Recovery Trust in Newcastle. Based on the findings of the consultation the two organisations will explore a joint project in the North East to tackle stigma and source appropriate funding. This consultation is therefore a foundational piece of work which the two organisations will use as a platform for a future project.
