Recovery Pride is an annual event held in Haringey as part of a national celebration of Recovery. The event is supported and funded by Haringey Council.
This year, Pride events will be held between November 16-20. There will also be activities running from October to December, including a specific Families project and a Young People’s Project.
Due to Covid, this year’s Pride will involve a number of virtual events and at Threads, we are delighted to be showcasing a series of broadcasts throughout the week:
- every day throughout the week at 10:00 (GMT) – ‘Recovery Bitesize’ pieces; interviewing service users, staff and families; asking what recovery means to them.
- Friday 20th November, 15:00-17:00 (GMT) – a special Recovery Pride Radio show – showcasing the work undertaken by services in Haringey, with a special award ceremony.
The basic aims of Recovery Pride are:
• To celebrate and recognise positive achievements by individuals affected by substance misuse
• To celebrate and recognise families and carers who have positively supported a loved one
• Celebrate the work undertaken by services in the area and individuals working in them
• To promote and encourage others to make positive changes
