alisonI’m absolutely delighted to introduce you to Hafal’s new Gellinudd Recovery Centre!

I have managed mental health hospitals and wards for many years. When I started my career I dreamed of working in a truly therapeutic environment where the patient received a holistic package of care and treatment – and where they were able to take control of their life.

Thanks to the vision and commitment of Hafal’s Members, and the support of the Big Lottery and the Welsh Government, Guests at Gellinudd will now receive such a service.

Gellinudd Recovery Centre is firmly focused on recovery: Guests are supported to plan their steps towards a fulfilled life in the community. As a Third Sector, not-for-profit organisation led by our Members, our interest is in supporting our Guests to move on and flourish as soon as they are ready.

In the process, Guests can enjoy a number of activities which will enable them to grow: they can take part in training courses run at the Centre; they can enjoy art therapy; they can go walking in the Brecon Beacons or on the Gower… the list goes on!

Like Hafal’s other services, Gellinudd Recovery Centre is run by the people who use it, and they take an active part in planning and developing the service.

Gellinudd Recovery Centre really is a world-class facility. It is the only service of its kind in Wales, and in the UK. Come and see for yourself! We look forward to welcoming you.

Alison Guyatt, Director, Gellinudd
