Greetings from Doncaster

We would like to share some examples of activities that fit perfectly in the idea of "Inclusive Recovery Cities".

Today we share the example of Doncaster and their Recovery Games.

The latest edition took place on 24 September 2022.

"The all-day event is a key attraction in the recovery calendar bringing together people from all walks of life from across the UK to celebrate the achievements of people in recovery from a drug and alcohol dependency. The Recovery Games attracts hundreds of people, who have lived experience or who work in the drug and alcohol field, competing in a day of fun packed healthy gladiator style games and obstacle courses on the ground and in the water".

The Recovery Games is organised by Aspire Drug and Alcohol Service, run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with registered charity The Alcohol and Drug Service.
