We have a small core team led by Dr Julie Repper, Director. The core team is supported by a diverse group of consultants, who between them bring rich experience and expertise gained through both professional and lived experience.

Most also work or have worked in the NHS in clinical, managerial and/or research roles. The wealth of experience we are able to call upon means we can match client needs with relevant expertise with ease.

Working nationally and internationally, modelling co-production throughout, the consultant group brings together diverse talents, yet we all share a common set of characteristics:

• we share values that are about making recovery a reality for all

• we work to the principles of co-production in all that we do, nurturing the strengths of every individual in whatever capacity they are able to offer them

• we bring cutting edge experience that is developed through pushing the boundaries of innovation at the frontline of care, combining both evidence and practice in ways that really work

• we are part of a global network of recovery leaders and as such can facilitate unrivalled networking opportunities

• we demonstrate our ethos and culture in the way we work; our behaviour, our language and our interpersonal skills
