Creative Recovery Charity Launch


It was truly an UPLIFTING 2014 made all the more special with the launch of Creative Recovery as a registered charity. As we closed the year we marked this with a presentation of the work we have achieved so far. Here’s a few snapshots from our day at the Town Hall Council Chambers.

We hear from participants what Creative Recovery has done for them and their families.
Courageous and honest. Participants speak about their own experiences with their mental health and wellbeing.

A big thanks to everyone who attended and supported the day. We leave you with the Creative Recovery Manifesto poem created and recorded by participants which opened the event.
We are Creative Recovery
We are the starting of lives, the opening of doors, the enveloping of wings and the soaring high
We are the letting down of guards, the acceptance of a family, a safe place to explore me
We are Creative Recovery
We are the lost and found
We are the knowing that there’s not just one way to be, that I matter
We are Creative Recovery
We are fresh ideas
We are colour and sound
We are the completion of projects and the realisation that it’s possible in your own life too
We are the building of confidence, the opening up, never feeling more alive
We are Creative Recovery
We are the expression of thought, and understanding the chaos inside
We are NOT dwelling on our illnesses
We are learning how to live again
We are Creative Recovery
We are trail blazing, filling the gap
We are the cultural shift, reimagining the future and rewriting the script
We are new perspectives, challenging the same old
We are changing the way YOU think
We are Creative Recovery
We are the reason to get going and keep going
The joyful charge into tomorrow,
We are anti-sorrow, lighting up the town.
We are the knowing.  The dreaming.  The belief that it’s all possible.
