HRH The Duchess of Cambridge attended a Recovery Street Film Festival event for a special showcase of the winning films from the past three years. She also met creators of the festival, winning filmmakers and representatives from the charities involved to hear about inspiring stories of overcoming addiction. 


Congratulations to this year's winners 'Hope Inside' which celebrates recovery at HMP Wymott.

Service users talk about their own experiences of addiction and what led to their 'light bulb moment'. The stories highlight that there is enjoyment in recovery, there is hope and as one service user puts it: "it's just really, really good being clean."
