Recovery Walk Scotland is the largest recovery event in Scotland and has been held every year since 2013. The event is compromised of three parts: Roses in the River Memorial at Glasgow Green, Recovery Walk Scotland procession thorugh the city centre and a Recovery Festival and Village on The Green.
Recovery Walk Scotland is supported by many hundreds of organisations and community groups. Last year 2000 people took part in Recovery Walk Scotland in Dundee.
Scotland’s prisons support the walk by hosting recovery walks within Scotland’s jails the day before. Last year 12 out of 15 of Scotland’s prisons held a recovery walk with a total of 550 prisoners and staff in attendance.
Kuladharini, Chief Executive of the Scottish Recovery Consortium said, “What unites the addiction and mental health recovery movements is much greater than any details that may divide us. It has long been evident to us in the addiction recovery movement that we are on the same journey as our brothers and sisters in recovery from mental distress. Our collective distress expressed in mental distress, addiction, obesity, smoking and violence have many of the same roots. Its is time we make common cause – Recovery Walk Scotland is a perfect vehicle for us to know and love each other better.”
The Scottish Recovery Consortium founded the Scottish event in 2013 after the experience of co-hosting the UK recovery walk in Glasgow in 2010. Recovery Walk Scotland is now organised and led by a council of Recovery activists from all over the country and the host city. The SRC provides full staff support the Recovery Walk Scotland council.
