Member Quotes

“Recovery Cymru helped me tremendously when I was struggling last year. If it wasn’t for this place I don’t know where I would be – I’d probably have been dead or in prison.”

“Becoming part of the Recovery Cymru Community has enabled me to feel as if I belong, like a happy fragment of society once more. I have made new friends, am able to structure my day by getting out instead of hiding myself away and enjoying participating in different activitieswhich help with my feelings of self-worth”
