Recovery Connections (RC) is a peer-led organisation based in Middlesbrough.
It started as Hope North East. It was founded in 2008 by members of the local recovery community and re-branded in 2016.
RC developed an Ambassador Programme that provides training to individuals who are in abstinence based recovery.
The Recovery Ambassadors provide visible recovery across Middlesbrough Recovering Together and act as the attraction for those people in active addiction.
Recovery Connections has requested funding for resources to promote their work through recovery events. RC will target the hardest to reach in the community.
This initiative supports the PCC’s objective of Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer. Decision 2017-57592: Recovery Ready Connections
