I became involved with AGRO 3 years ago after realising that community based groups like us, offer individuals the best opportunity to further their recovery away from the narrow confines of formal treatment services.

Kevin Morris

Board Member

I wanted to get involved with AGRO because I have experienced the perils of substance addiction.  I think these experiences have given me an insight which I am able to share within the AGRO community.

My role within the Board is to manage the finances for AGRO.

I truly believe that recovery through activity changes lives and AGRO has integrated into the recovery community to achieve this!

My name is Sarah Flynn and I am a Community Psychiatric Nurse with the Substance Misuse Service.

I got involved with AGRO because I was so pleased to see an organisation to support people in recovery starting in  the local area.

Paul Gordon-Roberts

AGRO Allotment coordinator

I’m a qualified Horticultural Therapist and have worked on various growing projects, mostly working with people with mental health problems.  I currently teach horticulture in a school for autistic children.

I wanted to get involved with AGRO because as a rebellious teenager I became involved in a drugs scene.  But, largely down to luck rather than judgement, I didn’t become addicted.  I saw lots of friends wasting their potential, and lost a close friend.  I think these experiences have given me an insight which I hope to use and share within the AGRO community.

I really believe in the idea of people coming together, supporting each other, and taking responsibility to improve their own lives.
