Pathways to Recovery provides outreach services, accommodation and support coordination services assisting clients to exercise their right of choice and control, and live a happy and fulfilled life.
So far Sally has not only benefited from a range of workshops and mentoring sessions through the program, she has developed her skills through her involvement in the program as a mentor.

Her role as mentor and workshop facilitator provides Sally the opportunity to develop her skills, growing her capacity as a business leader.
