“Recovery for me would be for Brendan to have the best quality of life regardless of illness - to be as happy, independent and optimistic as possible - to have the ability to do something with his life regardless of what it is - to have friends, relationships and be loved”.
“Although I’m not active in the financial economy I’m active in the social economy of volunteering which has been of great benefit and has helped me enormously”.
“Maintenance is not good enough. We are real people, who seek empowerment to discover and fulfil our potential”
“One of the most important things was that the staff at Redhall were able to hold the hope for me when I was unable to see it for myself and they refused to give in to my despair”.
