Webinar: Lived experience and the substance misuse treatment system

Webinar: Lived experience and the substance misuse treatment system


At a time of significant opportunity to renew the treatment and recovery field and the people it supports, this webinar will ask the critical question:

How can we all support the full range of lived experience leadership and expertise to thrive in the treatment and recovery system?

A panel of experts from different parts of the field and allied areas will offer their perspectives and discuss how we take this important agenda forward together.

The experts:

  • April Wareham – Director, Working with Everyone
  • Ged Pickersgill – Senior Business Development Manager, The Well Communities
  • Mark Pryke – National Service User Involvement Lead, Change Grow Live
  • Niamh Cullen – Public Health Manager (Drugs & Alcohol), Public Health Calderdale MBC
  • Olivia Butterworth – Head of Public Participation, NHS England and NHS Improvement

The panel will be chaired by Collective Voice’s Director, Oliver Standing.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for this webinar and bring your questions and reflections to the discussion.
