Derbyshire Recovery Initiative Project – Your opportunity to comment on the specification!

Posted on: 01 Mar 2023

We held some events in November 2022 to help us develop a new service to provide support for people in recovery in the Derbyshire area.

The events were interactive and offered opportunities for attendees to talk and share ideas about what a recovery offer should look like in Derbyshire.

These events were open to everyone, but we were particularly keen to hear from people with lived experience and organisations who had experience of supporting people in recovery.

We’ve used all of the feedback from these events to help us develop a draft specification for the new service which we’d like to share with Derbyshire residents and potential providers now.

You can download the specification here:

And you can download the detailed feedback and slides from the events we held here:

We’re looking to collate all feedback by 10am on Monday 13 March 2023.

Thanks for reading.  If you have any questions please reach out to us.
