Recovery Walk Scotland 2018

"All our dreams come true – if we have the courage to pursue them."

Recovery Walk Scotland 2018 took place in Glasgow on Saturday September 15th 2018. For the first time in Scotland, the recovery from addiction movement and the mental health recovery movement held a joint recovery walk.

What is Recovery Walk Scotland?  Here is a 1 minute summary!

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 over 3,000 people took part in Recovery Walk Scotland in Glasgow.

Scotland’s prisons support the walk by hosting recovery walks within Scotland’s jails the day before. 

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.
