Peer Educator

Ailish Connaughton became involved as Lived Experience Co-Lead in the REGARI Recovery College project, back in 2014,  when it was still in its infancy. Ailish’s initial involvement was on a voluntary basis, whilst she was working on her own recovery. This experience along with her background in Social Care and Education meant that Ailish was ideally suited to apply for the role of Peer Educator. Upon her success, Ailish began her role as Peer Educator of REGARI Recovery College in June 2015.
