News: Scotland's Recovery Culture events

node leader
25 August 2015

Phoenix Futures Scotland wants to celebrate recovery culture with you over the next year through events and activities, uniting people in recovery in Scotland. Recovery means passion, strength and courage, a community which will always welcome you, and a way of life which has for many built a brighter future.

Through arts, sport and nature, the Recovery Culture campaign aims to build a new support network for people in Glasgow and Lanarkshire. It will provide opportunities to make new friendships, discover what local drug and alcohol organisations can offer, and spread a positive message about recovery to the wider community.

Recovery Culture is not about one organisation. It is about every person, charity and partnership that believes in promoting recovery, coming together to support each other, forming new ties and having a positive presence in the local area. If you are interested in running a project with Phoenix Futures Scotland, please get in touch with jelena.mathias@phoenix-futures.org.uk
