We have been working with commissioners and service users in Haringey to help develop a sustainable borough-wide substance misuse user group that can support future commissioning and will enable Haringey services to evidence quality user involvement at a range of operational levels.

Work so far includes:

  • 2013 Service user involvement in commissioning services
  • 2016 Co-produced Peer evaluation of service delivery
  • 2017 Delivering a Borough-wide event for substance misuse service feedback
  • 2017 External accreditation for service users
  • 2019 Introducing new terms of reference for the Haringey Strategic Co-production Group (HSCG)
  • 2019-20 supporting the HSCG to conduct peer research project to inform the development of a peer -led recovery project.

The HSCG are currently (2021-22) developing a new peer led service in Haringey. This will include a community café, peer led activities and personal development opportunities.

If you are a service user of Haringey drug or alcohol services and would like to get involved please call Linda on 07958504759
