We believe that people who have experienced substance misuse problems have a role to play in helping others. Their experience and understanding should not be wasted when it can be used to support people trying to recover from their own substance misuse.
We believe that the experience and learning that mentors gain should be a valuable aid to them in their personal or career development.
We believe that peer support is a useful addition to other interventions and not necessarily a replacement for them.
We do not believe that any particular approach to helping people is better or worse than others.
We believe that recovery is something that people do themselves. We will do our best to help but we do not take responsibility for the outcome whatever that may be.
We believe that physical and other activities can be a useful aid to recovery.
We believe that other organisations and individuals are doing valuable work in this field and we wish to work with them whenever appropriate.
