Ryan from Llanelli has been working with Cyfle Cymru for over 5 months and has grown into the person he is today thanks to his mentor, Wayne.
Ryan, 30, turned to Cyfle Cymru for help in sorting his life out.
“After attending a meeting with Wayne, I knew that this was something I needed and wanted to be involved in” said Ryan.
Since then, he has completed a first aid course and peer mentoring training. He has also been attending SMART recovery groups and really enjoys volunteering.
Ryan said: “I’ve learnt so much about myself and how I could help others. I’m looking to the future to as a volunteer with Cyfle Cymru and I’m hoping to get into this line of work as a paid member of staff”
Cyfle Cymru is delivered by members of the DACW Consortium.
Cyfle Cymru is part of the Welsh Government’s Out of Work Service, supported by the European Social Fund.
