Recovery Volunteer Graduation 2024

Through our Recovery Volunteer Training Programme, people who have completed rehabilitation and recovery from substance use in CrossReach services are able to learn new skills and techniques to help others in earlier stages of recovery. The graduation ceremony from the programme is a key occasion in the CrossReach calendar. This year, we celebrated 22 graduates at a ceremony in Glasgow which was attended by friends, family, CrossReach staff and external partners. For those present, you could not miss feelings of joy, excitement and pride in the air from the graduates themselves but also their loved ones. Each story shared on the day was a touching reminder of how the support we give, transforms lives. It’s the same support that our graduates plan to extend to people in challenging circumstances as they step into their new roles.   

We had the pleasure of speaking with this year's graduates and guests, who shared with us their thoughts and experiences: 

“I feel really good actually, I’m proud of myself. I haven’t achieved much in my life due to 20 years active addiction so I’m really proud of myself. I’m really happy to be here.”
