Andy has completed a number of courses since he joined Cyfle Cymru – and now holds food hygiene, health and safety, and asbestos awareness qualifications.
He attends a number of groups with the recovery team, and volunteers with the Breakfast Club at the Lighthouse in Pontypool.
The weekly club provides people who use support services in the area with a free breakfast.
Andy, who has been working with Cyfle Cymru in Gwent for the last six months, has now begun to facilitate other groups – including regular gardening and walking sessions.
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.
