After struggling with substance misuse for many years, I made the decision to attend a rehabilitation centre in Bangor.
I received support with my recovery and then joined the Cyfle Cymru project, where I have completed all the personal development courses on offer.
I now feel I can give something back, so, under the guidance of my peer mentor Rod, I have begun to volunteer at drop-ins sessions and to shadow staff. I cannot believe how far I am progressing in my recovery with the right support I feel I can achieve anything.
With the support of Cyfle Cymru I am learning new skills, and I’m now ready for full-time employment. I would like to thank Rod and the Cyfle Cymru team for helping me in making positive changes in my life.
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.
