My name is Maggie and I'm a peer outreach volunteer at Ashley House. Our group was funded by our local DAT and we all attended "seize the day!" service user conference in Birmingham.
There was at least 500 delegates from all over the country, who all shared ideas to each others groups. An MP from the Houses of Parliament gave a speech about the new drug strategy and how this will affect us all, service users and workers.
There was lots of topics discussed from benefits, harm reduction, recovery. Our group really enjoyed our day there and we learned lots. Hopefully peer outreach will be able to attend other events in the future.
