Adam’s Story

Adam is in his mid-thirties and is an Army veteran. He found himself homeless until he entered Alabaré’s Homes for Veterans Cymru. Adam says he is thriving, having decided to put his past behind him and seize new opportunities.

Having settled into Alabaré’s home in South Wales, Adam was happy to work with the Alabaré team to create a personal support plan that met his needs. He agreed to join Alabaré’s Boots on the Ground (BOTG) programme which runs a series of wellbeing activities primarily held outdoors and which supports veterans’ mental wellbeing.

After recently attending a sailing residential weekend, Adam states, “I went sailing with BOTG on a residential course where I didn’t just learn about sailing techniques, I learnt a lot about myself and other veterans. The downtime was relaxing, and it gave me the opportunity to unwind, stop overthinking and get valuable support.”

Adam commented on where he had been in his life: “A year ago, I was in such a difficult place. Others might have given up, but Alabaré gave me a home and a chance to build a future. I was completely honest with them, and they did not judge me but gave me the support and opportunities I needed to move forward with my life. Alabaré’s Boots on the Ground team have helped me gain skills, confidence, and the ability to lead – they have made me a better person, and I am so grateful to them all. I hope all veterans in need can benefit from Alabaré’s support if they ever need it.”

Good luck, Adam!
