The launch of RISE Manchester
Yesterday saw the public launch event for RISE Manchester, the new adult drug treatment service for Manchester. Justlife attended the event and hosted a stall, alongside around 30 other organisations and services from across the city. As well as an excellent networking opportunity, the event put on seminars and discussions around various drug related issues.
Justlife took staff, volunteers and service users to the all-day event and was a great opportunity for everyone to make new connections. We are excited about the connections that we have made and the new opportunities that this will have for our clients.
The event was punctuated by a few key moments including an excellent performance by the Streetwise Opera company and the finale, a candlelight vigil held at the end of the day, in remembrance of those who have died for drugs and related issues.
