About: Swanswell Coalville

(as a service user),

Swanswell have been very helpful. I have joined the peer support group. I get to meet people who have the same problems as me and I can share the burden.

Response from Joanne Woods, Director of Eastern Region, Swanswell Loughborough We are preparing to make a change

Thank you for your post. Its really good to get positive feedback about how you are finding the support provided by Swanswell. Peer support is really important in helping people to recover from drug and alcohol problems and we are really keen to get more people who use our service involved with this. Positive feedback like this will hopefully spread the word about the benefits of peer support so more people get involved.
