Wynford Ellis Owen is travelling to make a difference... Our Chief Executive, Wynford Ellis Owen, is one of this year's recipients of the prestigeous Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship. His journey begins on 25th September from Heathrow airport to New York, Connecticut, Vermont, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Virginia. Follow his blog on this site or by clicking on the link, www.wcmt.org.uk or on www.wiredin.org.uk . Wynford will visit some new recovery community centre which achieve long-term recovery from severe alcohol and/or drug-related problems. Visiting these centres will provide him with very useful ideas on how to better build a strong "peer culture" into the services we're establishing in Cardiff by 2011.
