The NHS spends a huge amount of money every year, along with local government to help people who have struggled in addiction to find rehabilitation and recovery.

This one is with my good friend, Dave Higham, founder and CEO of ‘The Well’ – an incredible community of recovering addicts, here in Morecambe Bay. This one focuses on Dave’s own story through addiction and prison (where he’s spent more than half his life) and his journey of transformation and hope. This podcast is unmissable and (along with the next one, which is a group podcast with other members from ‘The Well’) has some of the best examples I know of how love and kindness practically restores lives and rebuilds communities – a prime example of the new politics and economics we need!
