Since joining Catalyst Active groups my confidence has come back.


David's Story

After suffering a stroke David was feeling isolated and didn’t know what was out there to help him with his recovery. He started to access day services provided by Catalyst Active. David likes the fact that services are designed around people’s personal interests and are provided either on a 1:1 basis or in groups.


My communication has improved and I am setting myself new goals to help others.


David had a goal to lose weight and when Catalyst Active offered groups aimed at fitness and well-being he ‘grabbed them with both hands!’. David has also always enjoyed gardening and cooking and has been able to enjoy and develop his skills with the support of Catalyst Active staff.

Recently David was involved in the first Catalyst Choices recruitment event and took part in interviewing prospective staff. Although he says he was nervous at first he really enjoyed the process and would do it again. In his own words David said ‘it felt like I was back at work’.
