We had such a good day and some brilliant , engaging conversations with lots of people . The vibe was great ! Charlotte Thorpe , Broadway Lodge
DDN would like to thank our sponsors and supporters – Camurus , Ethypharm and Nal Von Minden – Active Lancashire , and all our wonderful exhibitors . Thank you to our amazing teams of volunteers from Changes UK and the Hepatitis C Trust – and to each and every one of you who came to the conference and made it such a success .
It was great to see such a supportive and welcoming recovery community of partners and peers with lived experience . Georgia Patterson , Change Grow Live Birmingham
This was my first DDN conference and I wasn ' t quite sure what to expect . From the moment I arrived , I felt like I was surrounded by people who were full of energy and determination to spread the word that recovery is possible .
I felt proud to spend the day working alongside my amazing Change Grow Live colleagues , as well as honoured to meet many staff members and service users from other organisations . It was plain to see that as a collective , we all share a great passion for helping people to change their lives for the better and I look forward to attending again next year . Lydia Broom , Change Grow Live
We felt so honoured to be asked to attend the DDN conference and present our research . We have been working on this pilot for the last six months . We want to help generate interest around the potential for safer injecting centres , along with issuing naloxone to peers that are not currently accessing Cranstoun to ensure as many people have the life-saving kit that is naloxone .
