Providing hope,

connection & identity

EACH Recovery Matters is at the heart of a transformative movement, dedicated to supporting individuals on their journey to recovery from addiction to alcohol, drugs, or any other type of addictive behavior. Our volunteer program plays a crucial role in realising our vision of providing hope, connection, and identity to those seeking a brighter, healthier future.

What Is Volunteering?

“Volunteering is giving up your time and energy through a third party, which can bring measurable benefits to the volunteer, individual beneficiaries, groups, organisations, communities, environment, and society at large. It is a choice undertaken of one’s own free will and is not motivated by financial gain or for a wage or salary.”
