In recovery from alcohol or other drugs and want to give something back?

The ROADS (Recovery Orientated Alcohol & Drug Service) Peer Service is recruiting for individuals with lived-experience of substance misuse, homelessness, mental health and/or offending to play an active role in Bristol Alcohol and Drug Services.

A ROADS Peer is someone on their own journey of recovery with a desire to use their own experience to support others, to grow and develop personally & professionally, and to contribute to the Bristol recovery community.

Peers contribute to all areas of Bristol services; role-modelling recovery, , co-facilitating groups, care-planning, signposting & referring and supporting each other’s growth and development.

We offer an initial 4-day induction training, monthly modular trainings, work placements and a Level 2 NVQ in Peer Support.

Contact the Peer Team on 0117 9166588 to find out more.
