Wakefield Inspiring Recovery (Castleford)

Wakefield Inspiring Recovery run projects based in central Wakefield, Castleford, South Kirkby with on-site, mobile and pharmacy needle exchange across the district.

At first it felt like it was 'us and them'. Turning Point helped me to change my perspective. Now I am part of the team, it just feels like 'us'.
