Personal Stories from people who have attended a residential: 

"I was very fortunate to attend a Write to Freedom residential. I am in recovery from alcohol addiction and was blown away by the experience I had - the support, the connection, and how it helped me and continues to help me in recovery ." J

"I am a recovering alcoholic, I've been going to AA meetings and working the 12step program. As part of my recovery I was told about Write to Freedom. I was lucky enough to go to  the residential last June after having that experience it has played a big part in my recovery.  Write to Freedom helps others from all over with different kinds of addictions.  I can't put into words how many people these guys have helped and continue to help.
Not only is it making a difference to the individual but also the community." J 

"I am a recovering alcoholic and addict and have been sober for 3yrs and 5 months. I lost my husband through alcohol and his suicide 3yrs ago. Write to Freedom gave me a spiritual awakening in nature and release of pain I was carrying with me. All this was through the beautiful people whom bring this all together.  I came with fear and sadness and left with an overwhelming sense of gratitude,  through honesty and guidance, they helped me step out of the darkness and into the light. This is the most amazing charity that everyone whom is suffering could go on, with their continued dedication every month there after, for mentoring days that keep us all connected.  I will be forever grateful." E

"Write to Freedom has proved to be an invaluable step in my recovery. When finding sobriety but not finding life and reaching a plateau this residential has been pivotal in enhancing my outlook on life and resolving much of what has been holding me back.  An amazing staff team, you feel held and safe whilst engaging in transformative work. Thank you Write To Freedom team." C

"My life has taken an extremely positive direction since I attended the residential weekend with Write to Freedom and continue to take active part in fantastic mentoring days once a month in the beautiful Dartmoor. I have met like minded people that are always there for me and know I'm not alone or feel lonely amongst other people . I was full of fear, anxiety and distrusted the world and all of its contents.
At Write to Freedom I found an abundance of love , support and most importantly people I trust and a secure place to learn about myself and the beautiful world I live in." T

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
