literacy & numeracy
“I thought GalGael was just another programme to keep the DWP off my back while I got on with the business of drinking myself to death, no big deal.
But I was wrong.
I was shut down, enclosed, bitter, angry and resentful of everything and everybody; then there was GalGael. I’m a changed man, a better man, a man able to properly express his gratitude and appreciation for just about the first time ever, to open up and allow the world to see who I really am.”
