Aquarius Network Community – Home of Recovery (Anchor)

Anchor is a group made up of people who access our services, family members, friends, volunteers, and staff from all the adult services across Aquarius.

We have a common goal of involving people we support in developing our services and celebrating recovery.

It’s your opportunity to have your say, influence changes to the local and regional services and have an input into the development of new services. Most importantly it’s about meeting others, bringing together people from different backgrounds and supporting the improvement of our services.

We meet once a month to discuss various topics, ensuring that the voices of the people who access services are heard and can have an influence on how services are run and developed.

  • Share ideas for best practice across all services and partnerships
  • Create and implement changes in policies and procedures
  • Represent Anchor in management and board meetings
  • Facilitate local and regional forums
  • Organise our annual conference to celebrate recovery, as well as other recovery events
  • Meet new people and have some fun!

Both travel costs and lunch are provided when we meet in person.

  • Influenced change to local and regional services
  • Our voice has continued to grow and influence change across the organisation
  • We have been involved at local and national meetings and conferences to enable change
  • We have helped people develop interpersonal, educational, and employable skills through our work.

Anchor is local to our services. To get involved speak to your key worker (or any member of staff) or your local Anchor Reps.

Anchor has provided me with the opportunity to be a part of change and growth within our services, allowing my voice to be heard and respected. Anchor gives me the opportunity to give back.
