The Centre is a haven filled with friends and healing.
The warmth and friendship of the people I have met at the Centre have dramatically assisted my recovery.
I needed somewhere to go – the Centre has been my salvation. From the day I first came, the place has been like a haven, bursting with love and support.
This is a club that nobody wants to join, but for some it can be a privilege to become a member.
The Centre has all the qualities that a loving family can offer: acceptance, unconditional love and support .. and fun!
If I’m honest, the Centre saved my life.
