Realt Solas is a great programme. I have only been linked in here a couple of months and I find the staff very caring and looking for the very best for clients. Since starting I can feel myself coming out of myself more and talking about things I’ve bottled up for so long. I feel a lot fresher in myself and I’m in a better place than I ever was. That’s down to staff and groups. It has made me look at things a lot different and given me back some structure. I’m really starting to trust people.

The STAR is a great place to get involved with. It has helped me find who I really am and what I really want from my life. It’s a safe place and the staff members are helpful in every way and this has helped me find the strength within myself.
