‘If Recovery Education is the answer… What’s the Question?’ A Report on the event.

On May 3rd 2018, 110 stakeholders from across the four Provinces of Ireland and Scotland gathered in Bonningtons Hotel, Dublin, to look at the following question:

‘If Recovery Education is the answer… What’s the Question?’

This event was organised and jointly funded by the Dublin North, North East Recovery College, Advancing Recovery in Ireland and the Scottish Recovery Network.  The information contained in the attached report was recorded from participant feedback. The event was designed to give stakeholders the opportunity to reflect on recovery developments nationally, and collectively envisage what would be needed to realise a landscape fully supportive of Recovery Education by 2020

This was a unique event in Ireland, not only because of the methodology, but because of the diversity of organisations and the people involved in the conversations representing statutory and NGO sectors; within service catchments and within communities generally.  The diversity was evident in the quality and richness of ideas shared and outcomes reached over the course of the day. With such diversity and possibilities, it may be just the first of many equally energising conversations to come. 

On behalf of all involved with organising the event our thanks to everyone that took part on the day for your collective energy, ideas and vision, all of which are vital if we are going to see recovery education flourish in Ireland.  In particular thanks to the Scottish Recovery Network for your guidance and support and further thanks also to the recovery educators presenting on the day.
