“Amy’s Voice” Share’s annual conference

Our conference has been to postponed to  May 15th 2021  It will be held at the Shrewsbury University Centre from  09.30 – 16.00

This will take place on the second anniversary of Amy’s death and we will be highlighting three ways in which her life might have been saved if she had received the help she needed. We will be calling on the organisations running drug and alcohol services  to make those changes, so that others do not die in this way.

We will be showcasing the latest scientific evidence which demonstrates that addiction is a serious brain disease, which rewires the structure of the brain. This progressive condition should receive the same level of funding and services as any other life threatening disease, and we want to dispel the myth that it is a “ life style choice”

We will also be giving people the chance to talk about their own inspiring stories of addiction and recovery. It’ll be an exciting event, so please watch this space and we’ll let you know when you can book your place.

Introducing Dr Ed Day, the National Recovery Champion, who has agreed to be our keynote speaker ?
