TALKING SOCIAL ISSUES

Recovery Enterprises Scotland

Registered in January 2019, Recovery Enterprises Scotland is a new and innovative organisation with a social conscience. At Recovery Enterprises Scotland we aim to work with communities to tackle social issues such as poverty, isolation, and equitable access to support.

Recovery Enterprises Scotland has been established as a community interest company; with a team of three directors, one of which work within the organisation and other two providing their service in an advisory capacity. The three directors having over 60 years of experience working within the social care field; supporting the most stigmatised and marginalised groups of people being treated in a respectful manner, advocating for equality, where people are afforded the same opportunities.

The directors have been integral to developing and delivering a range of co-produced recovery projects. The added value has been exceptional, reaching a number of individuals not known services. This learning has been the driver in establishing the company in taking a more independent approach in delivering models enhancing people’s quality of life; as we feel it’s a strong foundation to build upon effective approaches to date and drive the shift towards prevention and tackling inequalities.
