20th Century Out

Lifeline Project & Voice

Voice Audio Bank is brought to you by people with experience of alcohol and drugs problems, volunteers, and Lifeline Project. Many interviews were designed and conducted by people with direct experience of drug or alcohol problems.

Open door sessions across different regions gave people with experience an opportunity to speak freely about their views, as well as their own story. The peer sessions made sure people felt comfortable, and felt free to say what they wanted.
