“I’ve come a very, very long way from when I arrived. I’ve progressed and I will keep on progressing. Nowadays, I take responsibility for my own actions, just like everybody else.”

I have thoroughly enjoyed engaging with the young people at Ryes college. we have covered so much information on drugs and alcohol the groups have always engaged well and taken part in discussions, activities, and role plays. We looked at the effects of all major drugs, the law, and how they may impact on peoples lives. It has been a pleasurable experience working with them
