Roots Community is a newly convened forum advocating for recovery in the Blackburn-with-Darwen area. By bringing together individuals who have been affected by addiction alongside partner organisations in the recovery sector, the Community seeks to:
- empower and amplify the voices of people accessing services through the maxim ‘nothing about us without us’;
- build recovery capital through the creation of training, development, volunteering and employment opportunities;
- develop positive, practical solutions to the systemic challenges faced by Community members.
Roots Community is a sister organisation to the Lancashire User Forum, a pioneering collective which has grown since its inception in 2006 to become one of the largest forums of its kind in the UK.
