Project Ahryzen

Project Ahryzen (2017-2020) 

“Ahryzen” describes a path of self-discovery, a journey of awakening from the struggle of addiction to creating new beginnings through the application of Transformative Recovery.

In 2017 BAC-IN was awarded a two year grant by Lankelly Chase to deliver ground-breaking Project Ahryzen in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University.  Project Ahryzen action research aims to explore through the authentic voice of lived experience the lives of BAC-IN peers, hidden experiences of disadvantage and the development of a successful model for supporting BAME communities facing multiple disadvantage.

A partnership of ‘diverse equals’ with different skills, resources and experiences;

BAC-IN

  • Lived experience of addiction, recovery and multiple disadvantage

  • Cultural competence/expertise & culturally responsive recovery solutions

Lankelly Chase

  • Learning and insights into severe and multiple disadvantage 

Sheffield Hallam University - CRESR 

  • Research and evaluation experience with those people who are often marginalised in research

 

Using collective insight gathered by BAC-IN friends and peers, the goal is to establish and learn from a ‘new paradigm’ for services for BAME people facing multiple disadvantage at individual, family and community level.

People with lived experience are given an opportunity to do volunteer work at BAC-IN after completing their recovery programme. They undergo skills training i.e. mentoring, advocacy and facilitating mutual aid support groups and are encouraged and supported to progress into paid roles within BAC-IN or other similar organisations. We aim to raise awareness of cultural issues and culturally responsive solutions for BAME people with lived experience, working with partners and commissioners to promote the ‘leaders with lived experience’ agenda.
