Public webinars

Transforming conversations on addiction and criminal justice

10 August 2022

In this webinar we spoke to Peter Atherton, the Founder and CEO of Community Led Initiatives (CLI). CLI is an incredible social enterprise that is taking concepts of service co-production and lived experience and taking them to the next level.

Peter spent most of his life in and out of the care system and prisons with problems around drugs and mental ill-health being a constant factor in his day-to-day life. We spoke to him about his story and how he used his own experience of recovery to set up a social enterprise which is transforming the lives of people who often see no way out of the situations they find themselves in. We spoke at length about CLI’s ground-breaking work, the barriers society creates and how we need to reframe conversations around criminality and addiction
