Peter Allen – Trustee
Peter attended the workshop at Fleet in 1994 and has been involved with workshops initially in his local areas and then residential weekends. He became a trustee in 1996 and has a special interest in starting groups in new areas and encouraging existing groups to keep running successfully. He is also keen to promote the many benefits of the workshop for anyone who needs emotional support whether in the early days or some time afterwards.
He now runs residential weekend workshops at The Harnhill Centre in the Cotswolds and at Scargill House in North Yorkshire and has been a regular member of the team at the Lee Abbey residential weekend.
Robbie Green – Trustee & Treasurer
Robbie attended a workshop in Reading in 1999 which was a revelation to her, it turned her life around, and made her feel a valued member of society again. She subsequently made teas and then helped in an admin capacity at the next couple of workshops.
The late and sadly missed Keith Herrington invited her to become Treasurer for DRW, She started in this role at the beginning of 2001, and then became a Trustee in 2012.
DRW Trustees are supported by a National Management Team of Co-ordinators and Facilitators who work closely with the Trustees to manage expectations and provide support to other Groups and workshops nationally.
This year, 2017 the Divorce Recovery Workshop has been in the UK for twenty five years, helping over 7,000 people during that time to come to terms with a marriage or relationship breakup.
