Paddy Tipping with attendees at an event to officially open the Recovery Centre in Newark
Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, officially opened the Newark Recovery Centre, based at 65 Northgate, last week (Thursday 21 March) as he cut the ribbon and noted how he was ‘looking forward to seeing how partners would work together in Newark.’
The centre is a partnership initiative that has been established to improve the treatment prospects of people across the county who have alcohol and drug problems.
A number of special guests attended the official opening event as well as Mr Tipping, including the Mayor of Newark and Nottinghamshire Healthcare’s Executive Director of Local Services Simon Smith.
Paddy Tipping said: “The centre is a great example of how partner agencies can successfully work together to provide a unique service that will benefit local people – in this case who suffer from drug or alcohol misuse issues.
“I had the opportunity, during the event, to speak to a number of the centre’s staff and service users and look forward to seeing how the partners would make a real difference in Newark over time. A great amount of skills and expertise has been brought together through this project thanks to each of the organisations involved.”
The centre has been established by the ‘Recovery Partnership’ – that is made up of Double Impact, Citizens Advice Mansfield, Framework, Hetty’s and Nottinghamshire Healthcare.
