“I am so happy that I got to come to WELLIES, it has helped me so much, it has given me more confidence in my independence. It has really changed my life. I am much happier when socialising with others now and enjoy getting away from home and spending time with others, WELLIES has really changed my life it has got me out, helped me make friends and has stimulated my mind and given me a sense of achievement. I now believe that I can do things instead of thinking I can’t all the time. It has overall improved my happiness and mental health.”
